My name is Zainab and I am a creative.
I was born to create. Art excites me. Music excites me. Words and stories get me high.
I don’t want to be ashamed of who I am anymore, I want the truth to be known. I want to be proud of who I am!
I don’t want to fit into a box. I don’t want to be part of the norm, a cog that keeps society running smoothly. That’s not me!
I want to be at one with my creativity!
I need to be me! I’m tired of pretending to be someone I’m not.
I want to sit in the dark listening to music with tears streaming down my face and not feel weird about doing it.
I want to lose myself in stories that are not my own.
I want to experience the euphoria that only comes from embracing the world that I belong in.
My name is Zainab and that was my confession, thank you for listening.
