I’ve never been the sort of girl
Who wanted a white knight on a horse.
I don’t need to be rescued.
I don’t want to be saved.
I’m not lost for you to find me;
But I’m a challenge like you wouldn’t believe.
I need adventure- side by side.
Someone to stimulate my life and my mind.
I need a dance partner in the rain,
Not shelter from the storm.
Don’t assume I need you there
At every twist and turn.
I need you to want to share life-
The joy, the pain, and the lessons we learn.
Accept me for who I am,
Not who you assume for me to be.
Every part of me is a puzzle
With pieces that fit if you take the time.
Every part of me is a person
Whose scars are on the line.
I need to laugh, I need to cry,
I need to fight, and trust you’ll stand by.
My emotions shouldn’t scare you
Please don’t let misconceptions stop you.
Step down off that white horse
And take a chance on me.©Carrie Klein ∗The author retains all rights to the above copyrighted material. Please feel free to reblog or share, but include author credits. Thanks! ♥
