YoTrip Presents: I Am NOT That Girl Anymore

Over 90 days ago I penned this poem as a declaration of how I want my life to be different in the years to come. I have availed myself to people out of a desire to please and twisted obligation. I have decided to free myself and allowing others to find another path to accomplishing their programs and processes. I will unapologetically, choose my who, what when, where, why and how. I am not mad or sad, but more than anything else I Am Not That Girl Anymore! Happy Birthday to me 7/29/13
I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who could effortlessly gets it done

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who had all her balls up in the air at once

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who worked from both ends of the candle and clock

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did not blink when you added to her things to do list

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that opened up and closed out the events

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that had one word she used for every request: YES

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that everyone expects to “handle it”

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that never forgets birthdays, anniversaries, or any day

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was tough as nails and could take it all on

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that lived for the rush and rushed to live

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who kept it all together from top to bottom

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that could make something out of nothing

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that worked on projects  from pillar to post

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was like the energizer Bunny always on the go

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was always happy to accommodate everyone

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who waited and even carried the weight

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who could just fix it

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who sought to make everyone happy

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who never gets tired

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who has the headband, cape, belt, and boots –Wonder Woman

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did it now and worried about how later

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was always in the know

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who brought order, made the order, or gave the order

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that was always seeking perfection

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one filling in and feeling it no matter what

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one a centerpiece always in the middle

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who affirmed the “I’m Every Woman” Syndrome

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who cared for everybody but not for herself

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one that welcomed more to do

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who did until it was done

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who was both careful and caring

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who aimed to please and was pleased to aim for all targets

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

You know the one who always answered the call

I Am Not That Girl Anymore

It is a new day and I am walking into it!

    Love the poem Yolanda! The word “no” is a good word to know! This poem resonates with alot of us strongblackwomen. Smell the roses and be comfortable with folks helping you! Continue to inspire.

    • Thanks so much Alema! I just started writing and it poured out of my spirit. I was tired fed up, dealing with hot flashes and mood swings. I am more than OK to be waiting on these days. I miss you we need to get together.
