Dear Self,

I am a strange beast.

I am a fierce tiger, an angry wounded cat.

I am a long-distance giraffe, optimistic and vulnerable.

I am a spikey, soft bellied echidna.

I am a warm, protective, comfortable hibernating bear…angry when unexpectedly woken.

I am a nasty, misunderstood, crocodile.

I am a kangaroo, a freak, a powerful and astounding creature in full flight.

I am an elephant.

I’m not really sure why my friends and family continue to love this strange beast that I am.

But they do.

Love.

Luke.
