Purple Dreamer

I'm a dreamer, a reader, a techie, a writer,
a learner, a teacher, a thinker, a fighter.
I'm feisty and funny (or so I've been told) 
I'm not very brave or courageous or bold.
I love to help others and watch them succeed
When asking for help you'll need never plead.
Unless, of course, you're from my painful past,
Then I might be more hesitant, and help you out last.
My journey's been rocky, full of smiles and tears,
I just hope I keep growing for the rest of my years.
