I Am...Me

I Am me.

Because no one knows my struggle;

No one knows what it's like.

To hold in pain,

While trying to contain life. 


I Am me. 

Because I have fallen.

Deeper than I've ever been.

Hoping someone will save me, 

Save me from this never end. 


I Am me.

Because I have learned from my mistakes. 

I pick myself up,

And take on everything by the day.  


 I Am me.

Because I feel my hurt. 

I feel my anguish. 

I feel my determination.


I Am me. 

Because I know what I need to be. 

Not for anyone else.

No one else, but me.
