I Am Me

Today I felt tears in my eyes, they were there

form many reasons. I felt the impact of many

things, people mostly.

I felt their meanness I let go so many times

many times before. It just built up so much

I had to let it out.

People nag at me, because I am me, not just

what they want me to be.

It is not me to change from something I am

to something I am not.

So you have to take me for what I am or take

me not at all.

You have to know me before you even try

to change me.

Then you may see that you don't want to

change me after all.

Take the time to get to know me, for I am
