In my entire life

And wouldn’t recognize good writing

If I saw it


Guess what

I don’t give a shit about what you think

Of me


I am a strong woman

I am beautiful

I am passionate

I am me


And I will write the way I want to write

I will say what I want to say

And how I want to say it

I will post the pictures that I want


You may not like what I write

I write to share my soul with those who will read

I write to express my feelings

I write for me



❤ Me
