I Am

Written by: Bettie Avery

I Am
I am caring and very shy
I wonder what it's not like to cry
I see in the mirror a mother who will try
No more do I now want to die
I still pretend with a smile
Under my feet is the cold tile
I want to forget everything for awhile
I will climb that next mile
I will worry no more
I am better then before
Happiness for me is what god has in store
Now instead of the old path I'll take a new door
I have friends and family that care
I have a new life with some flare
Now in the mirror a new women back at me will stare
