For I am me, not anyone else
I’m not “different”, I am just myself.
Don’t try to lead me, or take my hand
On “my” two feet, I will try to stand.
I may be stubborn, set in my ways
In the long run, I’m the one who pays.
Though hurdles are hard, to over come
Once I have, I’m proud of what I’ve done.
Don’t change me, to meet “your ideal”
I won’t play games; I’m not “your seal”.
It’s taken me years, to finally see
I’m no one else, for I am just “me”!
