From the book Girls Speak Out: Finding your true self by Andrea Johnston:

My true self
by sibley, 26

My true self is a dappled green
light through a leafy canopy
limitless as water,
bright as stars.
But I keep forgetting that
and believe I'm tax returns
and back orders
and constant complaints,
that I'm dimples and
dented car fenders
and the annoying, funny
theme songs to TV sitcoms.
Sometimes I think
what I need to do,
rather than what I want to do.
I forget,
in the face of fear,
that I am the face of love.
Just remembering
makes me cry
softly in forgiveness.
