Still Finding Me

still finding me-1a075ddb
Dan Dodge

My name is Olivia, I am in the sixth grade. 
I will be honest, I’ve been a follower, but I have also been a leader.
I like arts and music. I love to write. 
I’ve been told to be my own person. 
Not you… not them, 
but me. 

I’ve followed some trends, I’ve laughed at things I didn’t know. 
I’ve tried to fit in and I’ve followed the crowd. 
I’ve changed the way I dress and I wanted to fit in. 
I’ve been mean to people and I’ve regretted it.
But now I realize all of that doesn’t matter. 
Who was I doing this for? It wasn’t for me, it was for them. 

Now I spend my time drawing and singing in the shower. 
I enter in so many contests and I get good grades. 
I still wear jeans and sweatshirts. I like those. 
These things make me happy and that’s all that matters. 
I’m still trying to find out what I want to do.

I’m still finding me.
