All I can be is me.
I tried to be you and I failed miserably.
I tried to be her and she just ain't fit on me.
Shoot, I even tried to be him but that just wasn't happening.
I cannot will not continue to try
Continue to try and live a lie
of being anyone else but me.
Let's dap it up.
I Know you want the best, but that's not my best.
What you want me to be is normality.
Cut from a specific cloth
To even attempt to be
Anyone but me
Me trying to please you and fit in
Is killing me within
I can't pretend anymore
I'm just not that girl
Accept me for my quirks
Accept me for my class
Accept me for my refusal to be apart of any mass
I love me
I value me
I believe in me
Refuse the offer
To confirm to the common paths of this world
The traditional ways of this culture
The expectations of you and them
So let's not pretend
As if I'm going to for even a second
Be anyone else but me.
