542 I Am [18 June 2003]

Who am I?
I am woman. I am child.
Frozen with fear.
Constantly changing like the world around me,
though sometimes with my heels dug in.
I am all the things I ever expected to be.
Fierce as a lioness, quiet as a mouse.
I am nothing and everything
including all that in between.
I desire. I need.
I am never just one being.
I am myself.
