I Am


Day after day I cannot hide
The person I am, my true side
No one understands my situation
I long for my change in anticipation
As days grow into years
I lose sight of my childish fears
I refuse to be haunted by their taunts

My body's changing but I'm still me
I'm slowly becoming what I want to be
Now no one can try to tell me who I am
For finally they realize I am a man
Young, bright, and full of potential
Quickly fall back to daily ritual
I'm on the road to my career

I can't be stopped; I'm on a roll
With hard work my bank is full
Now to the world I will share my wealth
Through protection, safety, and health
So I've forgiven those who have tried
To make me banish my "evil" side
Because I am a man
