I Am Me
Be this!...Be that!...
They speak without thought.
'Get rid of your fat!', they yell like a sport.
They tell me that I'm dumb,
Though I'm trying not to be,
Yes!, I am what I am but you hate that I'm me.
When I am perfect in my eyes..., for a second there you are
So you tell me that I'm not, and your laugh leaves a scar.
Then this sadness that should have died long ago, but did not
Sneaks up on me in the night, laying with me as I rot.
Don't despise me, please, I beg!
What did I do to deserve this?
All this hatred shown in red, I'll do all to disperse this.
But...I am 'ME', like I said
