I did not just happen. I
This girl who knows nothing, or this girl who knows too much.
Either way, I have much to be thankful for.
I thank the earthlings who became my family.
I thank the school across the road, with its tiny wooden chairs.
I thank the teacher that slapped me right across the face.
I thank the girl who shared her lunch.
I thank the boy that made me laugh,
I thank the man who made me cry,
I thank the people who laughed at me,
I thank the ones who wept with me.
I thank the ones who insulted me,
I thank those who admired me.
I thank the universe for making me who I am.
Just who I am. Real and imperfect.
I love how this list can be endless, and for that
I thank my stars.
