This Is Me

This is me. I am not perfect.
I make mistakes. Lots of them..
I am not defined by what other people do or say.
Although I am defined by my actions.

This is me. I am alone.
I can't trust because I have been hurt too many times.
I have been put down and made fun of.
But it doesn't keep me from trying to be happy.

This is me. I am quiet.
I am quiet because I can't bring myself to open up.
I've been told that girls should be seen and not heard.
But all I want is to talk.

This is me. I am stressed out.
There's so much I feel like I need to do.
''Just take it one day at a time,'' they tell me.
How? Are you sure it's that easy? I don't think so.

This is me. I am being criticized. For everything.
How I talk, how I walk, how I look.
But you know what? I... Don't.... Care.
I am my own person. Not some little puppet in your petty games.

This is me. I am happy. Just the way I am.
Nothing you do can change that.
Tease me all you want. It doesn't matter.
As long as you know, you can't change me.
