Contradictions

Imitation is Suicide. Insist on yourself; never imitate. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

     I am a woman of contradiction.  An Aquarius on the cusp of Pisces.  A rebel and trailblazer hiding in a traditional job.  A core of steel hides inside these sensible clothes .  Tell me what to do and I will do the opposite just to show you I can.  I speak my mind in such sweet words you will thank me when I am done.  I break into random songs that reflect what my heart can't say.  I love with all my heart, but have a hard time trusting anyone.  I never forget what is important to my friends but often forget my phone number.  I am a flower girl born a generation too late.  I rarely get mad, but when I do, my claws will leave you scarred.  I only draw stick figures, but give me a needle and thread and I can create a tapestry that rivals the masters.  I can sit for hours doing what I love, but not for a minute if you waste my time.  I will defend the lowest common denominator we all share and then I will defend your right to tell me why I'm wrong.  I will face down a bully in the middle of the street, but cower in fear at losing someone I love.  I live life to the letter of the law, but not to the intention; look for me in costume because you are supposed to "dress" up.  I am often so tired I can barely walk, but I am freakishly strong.  My tastes are eclectic, but my opinions are solid.  I can read your energy, but I can't make decisions.  I love to dance, but only in my kitchen.
