I am a rock-simon and garfunkle "I am a rock; I am an island; I've built walls, a fortress deep and mighty...I have my books and my poetry to protect me." (poetry-metaphor, personification, internal struggle; man vs self; introversion; compare with picturebook Albert)
A Brave New Adventure: Enough "I am enough. I am full of sparkle and compassion. I genuinely want to make the world a better place. I love hard. I practice kindness. I'm not afraid of the truth. I am loyal, adventurous, supportive, and surprising. I am a woman. I am enough."
"I am secure in who I am. I don't need the validation of those that would say, you have to be a certain way in order to be accepted. I'm comfortable going against the grain. I'm walking my path and I will always walk in the direction my heart tells me to go, even if I must walk alone." — Unknown Author
