I tried hard not to be,
What I am today,
Left some people wondering why,
While others were asking why not,
And they wanted me to be what everyone strives to be.
But I’m me,
I do not want to be rich,
Nor do I want to be famous,
I just want to be me,
Just simple, plain old me.
Some might say I am pretty boring,
Maybe I am boring,
I could also be uncool,
But I don’t give a thought to each of your views.
To the very few who understand me,
And share my vision,
For a better today,
And a brighter tomorrow,
It’s all love,
Keep that flame burning.
For the rest, I don’t mind that you don’t want to know me any more,
I am not who you are searching for.
Erase the time you met me,
Delete the moments we have been together,
Because that me never existed in the first place,
Never will we cross paths again,
Think of me as a bad dream,
You just want to forget me.
This is the new me,
Or person I have always wanted to be,
The person who was hidden inside of me,
Waiting patiently to be set free.
This is me,
Accept it or beat it,
And if you beat it,
Because that was not me.
