I am...everything, i am...nothing

I am everything i said i wouldn't be

but thats okay.

I am everything i hoped i'd never be

but thats okay.

I am everything i wish i never said

but thats okay.

I am everything they say i am

but thats okay.

I am everything i thought i was

but thats okay.

I am everything you said i wasn't

but that is okay.

I am nothing they thought i'd be like

but thats okay.

I am nothing my parents said i'd be

but thats okay.

I am nothing i wanted to be

but thats okay.

I am nothing you ever wanted

but thats okay.

I am nothing he wanted me to become

but thats okay.

I am nothing i thought i'd be 

but that is okay.

I am everything, and i am nothing, and that is all okay.

I will never be what you want,

i will never be what you need. 

I will always be what i want 

and i will always be what i need.

They, he, you, she, none of that controls me.

For I am the one who knows what i'll be. 

I'll be something called ME.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
