i am me.
I can't be anyone else.
I won't try 'cause that's just lazy.
It's hard being yourself sometimes
I mean absolutely true to self even when it's not "cool".
I don't care if I'm not anyone's ideal character.

I am me.
I'm not prissy or overly girly.
I can't walk in heels.
I don't dress in designer clothes.
I'm not all about riches or fame.
I hate talking on the phone (if I make exceptions it's because I REALLY care).
I'm a sarcastic ass especially if you say or do stupid things in my presence.

I Am me.
I wear my hair how I want (braided, naturally curly, or silky straight it's MY prerogative).
I'm shy around people I don't know.
I'd rather be the aggressee (yes, I made that up) than the aggressor.
I'm not a socialite but I know how to converse with the "right" people at the "right" time. 

I Am Me.
I got tired of faking a long time ago.
I may not smile as much as others but I know how to be happy.
I know perception is key and that my happiness is up to me.
I'm loyal, faithful, and true.
I'm ride or die until the day I die.

Take me as I am.
I'm not perfect but I love myself. 
Seldom do I take this stance but right now it's all about me
For the betterment of me

Typhani M. Roberson
