I Identify As A Unicorn

My Journey

I Identify As A Unicorn

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, You know when you're alone in your dark room. And you think to yourself that this is not you. I looked at the woman in the mirror and said " I'm a freakin' Unicorn" This is my journey into becoming the real me.

When I knew I was different

I always wanted to be trotting around. It was like an urge I had no control over. I had no friends because I was "That weird kid that trotted around the school tree" I just thought it was a ridiculously long nick name. Would it have cost them to shorten it? My head felt naked. I was missing something but didn't know what, It was frustrating. Another sign was the obsessive use of glitter. I had to throw it in the air every time I came into a room. It got so bad I started to eat glitter so then my poop would come out looking more fabulous than me.

Leaving Hints For My Family

I thought of pretty cool ways to leave hints for my family. I put many Skittles in their food. I think that passed all the hurtful demeaning -soul crushing -I'm probably going to need therapy words they said to me, I think they enjoyed it. I also put glitter in their shampoo. I think they rocked it. Not really but my intentions were good. They seemed confused as to why I was doing these things. That's when I was ready to come out to them.

Officially Coming Out

I figured that after the hints I should just reveal the secret to them. I gathered my family in the living room one calm afternoon. As I was walking down the hallway negative thoughts clouded my mind. I thought about the Michael's store glitter sale I was missing, And if they'll realize that Shonda Rhymes is secretly evil for killing off Mcdreamy in 'Greys Anotomy'. I Shook off these thoughts and kept walking.

I threw glitter in the air and trotted my way into the living room. I stared at them for precisely a minute then I got my Unicorn mask I bought at a local Halloween store. I slowly put the mask on while staring into their eyes. They say it was awkward I say it was us bonding. It was pretty deep. I bowed down and saw no expression on their faces.

They got up and started to leave the living room. They looked at me and told me that they knew I was a "Unicorn". They said that's why they always made me be 15 steps behind them and they told people I wasn't their child. Now I know where I get my comedian side from.But I know that deep deep down behind those 100 walls of steel, A fire breathing dragon, Black dark woods that are filled with thorns and depression, There's a heart. A black like charcoal heart but nonetheless a heart. I neighed in happiness and Trotted into the sunset.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
