She is Herself By: Jordan Courtney

She used music to express her thoughts

Say the sheet music gently resting on

The piano in front of the large window.

She had different sides to her own story,

Say the various different books stacked on

The bookshelf nestled in the corner.

She liked her world to be plain and classic

Say the unused colored pencils

Lying across the black and white drawing

Still attached to the sketchbook.

Her mind was always

Coming up with ideas

Say the well-used journals cradling the

Dull pencils upon the desk.

She needed the comfort of

Her childhood memories,

Say the multiple stuffed animals leaning

Against the wall in a carefully thought out pattern.

Her roots were buried in more than one place

Say the foreign toys and rugby ball

Sitting next to each other.

Her head was always in the clouds,

Chasing her dreams,

Say he multiple dream catchers

Hanging on the wall.

She was creative and unique, they say.

Always doing what she wanted

And changed for no one's standards

But her own.
