I was bored

Self Portrait

Anxiety grips her by the throat
But she wants to stand up and speak for herself
She is introverted
Yet craves relationships
Impulse and passion control her heart
Overthinking has authority over her mind
She stays up all night
But she’s a morning person
Easily lost
Yet she’s good at directions
She knows she could love so intensely
But she’s afraid of giving all of herself to someone in the process
Wanting to leave what she’s known
Frightened of ambiguity
She’s a walking contradiction
But she knows who she is
