I’ve worked for what I want,
And I’ve fought to be who I am.
I can’t live up to other expectations,
That defeats the purpose of my freedom.
I don’t want to be like others,
And others can’t be like me.
I’ve allowed myself to live without regrets,
Discover who I want to be.
Desire fueled my spirit,
And I could finally recognize my truth.
I’m not the way I used to be,
But I’m okay.
And In this moment,
I’m unapologetically… me
