– a name given to me with love
– a relation offered to me by life
– a victim at times
– a victor at others
– responsible for some mistakes
– irresponsible for some choices
– as real, as I am romantic
– as much a rebel, as a realist
– not perfect, nor do I claim to be
I am an individual.
My gender neither qualifies me for greatness, nor disqualifies me from it.
I am …
…my greatest present, both in time and in treasures.
