Am I Really

Identity is a hard question we face as we get older. Since I was young I was looked down on because of the slight accent that creeped into my voice. Because I am adopted my parents don't have any type of accent but for some reason my voice curls to the melodious speech. After many years of practice I finally found myself speaking with a pure Canadian accent. But now that I am older I wonder, "What am I really?" Do I deserve to call myself Irish even though I tried to abandon it long ago? Hmmm... I realized just this past year how much I love my Gaelic heritage. When people meet me for the first time they ask if I'm Celt. Maybe due to my red curls and pale skin. I look the part but I wonder if I can still talk the talk.

reality is strange.

So are platypus...

If you are Irish, your Irish. Irish Heritage is pretty stubborn and hard to get rid of. If it's not your looks, it's your personality and out-look on life, if it's neither of those, it's your looks! XD I'm Irish (live in Ireland) and I have the eyes (Hazel moss green) and the outlook on life. The best thing about the Irish is that even if you haven't lived in Ireland for years on end, Ireland will always be your home and the Irish will always be your friends and extended family.
