Today I gave up trying to fit societies mould
An effort that I thought sounded rather bold
Today I gave up trying to conform my dress and look like who I'm not
I admit that I like overvalls and sandals with warm socks.
Today I gave up trying to defend my opinions and my thoughts
I accept that we will disagree more often that we will not.
Today I gave up trying but that statement isn't what it seems
Instead of trying to be what I'm not - today I showed up as me
