Just a poem I wrote for an English project the other day. I feel as though it's everything about me wrapped into one.
Daughter of parents who are too good for her
Sister to Chinese sister Gracie
Lover of old clothes that tell secret stories, kind gestures that are unexpected, and delicate roses that blossom beautifully
Who feels different than her peers, peaceful with her inner self, and hopeful for her future
Who needs for people to stop judging by appearance, for a friend to love her, and for someone not to let her down
Who gives God her soul, people second chances, and the past too much thought
Who fears going through life alone, making a bad impression, and losing who she is
Who sees life through a camera lens, people with naive eyes, and the beauty in everything
Who believes in never having too many dresses, in showing unending appreciation, and in miracles
Resident of a town with nothing left for her
I had the perfect outfit to take pictures of today but the incessant rain all day thwarted my plans. Even my back up plan of making a video blog was stopped dead in its tracks. I had it filmed and everything and then it refused to upload online. Oh Mondays...you exasperate me.
With much love, Lauren.
