Contemplating Myselfies

I take selfies because I am proud,

Of a time, an accomplishment, or a merger.

Those memories we want to hold,  yes.

But more that eyeshadow my Anti-dexterous hands let me have

…free of clown face.

The shoes I could manipulate my feet into,

Within 15 minutes

And those mergers

between the self I feel,

And the self I see,

The mergers I was once dying to see

And would have killed for.

I see those more and more now.

They still feel like I am catching magic,

And I still take pictures.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
