It Took Me Awhile

By: Marissa Ammon

It took me awhile

To find myself

and realize why

I was the elephant in the room

It took me awhile

to accept my differences,

to understand others

the way some failed to do with me

It took me awhile

to stop labeling

figure out my sexuality

Do you figure it out like a puzzle?

You can’t choose, or can you?

It took me awhile

to trust myself

Am I good at anything?

Why can’t I do this?

It took me awhile

to love me

My body image distorted, it changed

It took me awhile

but I found my way

Let the posts
come to you.
