In knowing I am not perfect

But I aspire to life’s challenges

And I remain myself


Because I have not changed for anyone

And accepted who I’ve become

Understanding everyone's uniqueness

Transforms any soul

With uncontrollable knowledge


Because I have embraced all my flaws

The curves at my waist

My crazy curly brown hair

Wearing glasses day and night

Always different from others


Because I've learned to overcome 

To stay motivated

To be determined 

And to never change who I am

And there isn’t a soul that can change that


Because I am me
