This is the last track on my upcoming spoken word album, Bursting Into Art. I didn't want it to be the last track. I thought I was writing a love story. But it ended up being a self-love story, like all stories. And that is something infinitely more valuable. I'm happy to say that I won 2nd place at the competition last night. This was the poem I did in the first round. The original piece is much longer. I had to cut it to the 3 minute limit of the slam.
