I'm starting to feel like I've found myself

My calling, my passion, my desire

I can finally see a bright future again

But then there are these moments with those people

They consider themselves traditionalists

But the reality is

They are in the box thinkers

Their image of beauty

Of intellect and success

They are surrounded by borders

And tell me they are disappointed that I don't fit

In the past that would bother me

Maybe even hurt me

But now I question them

I ask why they can't expand those borders

Why they are not able to see

The joy I feel, the drive I share, the dream i believe in

If they could let themselves see

They could recognize the person I am

And the quality that should make them proud
