I am me

I know no other way to be

I couldn’t be you

You would not do

 

I am not perfect

But then…who is?

My life is still worth it

This game? I’m still in

 

There were times when I lost

But I got up again

My confidence shot

My sanity, defense

 

Time and time again

I’d rise

Through blindness

I’d open my eyes

 

My right now

Would be dark

My surroundings

…stark

 

I’d look up ahead

See a glimmer of light

Get back into gear

And pick up my fight

 

I accept who I am

Work with what I have

The fire within fierce

My gaze at me now pierce

 

In the mirror

I see

I am me

I know no other way to be
