I’d rather be a closed book than an open one with the pages torn out.
In reality I’m constantly disappointed, forever intimidated.
But in my mind I can be strong, effervescent and colorful.
My speech never flounders and my aims are always true.
I’m an ancient Queen whose knowledge holds power.
I’m a righteous hired gun complete with the sprawl talk.
Back down in the now, timidity itself, worried dreams will overtake.
Hidden deep within I know who’s really there.
