I am

I am more than my name: T – Talented, creative and educated. O – Open to challenges and criticisms that may come. M – Mature and realistic, calm and patient. I am more than my gender: M – Mindful of others, their feelings and wants. A – Appreciative of my freedoms and liberties. L – Loved and loving. E – Energetic, rarely tired. I am more than my appearance: S – Sexual assault survivor. K – Kicked down but not beaten. I – Individual and unique. N – Naked and exposed in moments of uncertainty. I am more than my illness: D – Determined to find positivity and joy where possible. E – Excitable and childish. P – Protective, caring and loyal. R – Responsible and grown. E – Erratic below the surface but working on calming those waves. S – Single but believing in love. S – Silent, taking to time to meditate. I – Interested in people and places new. O – Original, with a blend of blood, bone and family history. N – Naturally blonde, now purple. I am proud to be: M – Magic. E – Enough.

|You are an inspiration, Thomas. Thank you for sharing about conquering and not staying down like a victim. You have much to share with the world and the many who have been victimized so they too can learn to become more. Bravo as you carry on with your life mission.

very clever to do acrostic like you did, Thomas. I like how cute and sincere this one was. Sorry you went over the line limit. Only reason you got HM instead of numbered placement. Congrats and thanks for entering my contest.
