I’m Not The Girl Who Looks The Other Way

I’m not the girl who’s afraid to dream, who’s afraid to ask for more. I’m not afraid to jump in with both feet to make my dreams come true, I’m not afraid of failure or disappointments, I’m only afraid of settling for a life that doesn’t make me happy or a life I can’t be myself in.

I’m not the girl who’s going to suppress her feelings or her voice, I’m not the girl who shows too little interest because it’s cool. I’m the girl who throws caution to the wind and loves fully and deeply like there is no tomorrow. I’m not the girl who’s scared of love or falling in it.

I’m the girl who keeps falling but haven’t hit the ground yet because I always find a way back up.

I’m not the girl who’s going to play it safe, I’m the girl who’s always going to do what’s different, what’s unconventional, what’s mad and whatever speaks to my soul.

I’m not the girl who follows the rules, I’m the girl who breaks them.

I’m not the girl who tries to be perfect, I’m the girl who makes art out of her imperfections, ideas out of her messy thoughts and love with her fragile heart.

I’m not the girl who stays when she needs to leave. I’m the girl who walks away from disrespect, from unappreciation and from unrequited love.

I’m the girl who won’t settle for less than a fairytale. I’m the girl who refuses to believe that love is realistic, that love is mediocre, that love is mundane.

I’m the girl who believes that love is magic, that love is madness and I’m the girl who believes in happy endings.

I’m not the girl who looks the other way and runs away from her life or her problems. I’m the girl who faces them, who challenges them, who tries to overcome them and I’m the girl who’s going to keep fighting even if I’m running out of breath.

I’m the girl who is always searching for something more, for miracles within reality and reality within miracles, for beauty within chaos and light within darkness. I’m the girl who wants to change the world and keep changing with it.

I’m the girl who keeps moving until she finds something that moves her.

I’m not the girl who looks the other way, I’m the girl who looks at you, at the world and at herself with passionate eyes, a curious heart and a wandering soul. I’m the girl who’ll always be alive no matter how many times life tries to kill me.  TC mark
