I am a simpering Victorian virgin. I am a veritable virago.
I am devilishly exciting and I am predictably unpredictable.
I love truth and justice and I abhor hate and ignorance.
I am a lover and a fighter. I am a woman, I’m a hussy.
I relish the operatic and I bull wrestle with the best.
I bring the bacon home and then I burn it in the pan.
I am wild and untamed. I am subtle and oh so innocent.
I am shy; I am a rebel with a ferocious battle cry.
I am angry; I am the calm in the eye of every storm.
I am never in the middle. I am the start; I am the finish.
I am a student of my life and I teach me every day.
I am so many different people and yet I am one; I am the same.
I look into my mirror and I love what I do see.
I have my own beliefs and a sense of right and wrong.
I will never look to others to define who I should be.
I am imperfect and I don’t care because I know what’s in my heart.
I am me and I am beautiful and I am proud of who I am.
I am never one for bullshit, you can shove that up your ass.
I am Shelby I. Courtland and I never say what I don’t mean.
(yeah, you guessed it!)Shelby I. Courtland
