I Say


They say I'm smart, something like a work of art. But me, I say "I'm free", that I'm only being me. They say I'm cool even though I love to go to school. But me, I say "I'm myself; I think I do it for my health". They say I'm tough, but I say "I'm only tough enough: to be me, to be free, to be smart and a work of art, to be cool and love to go to school, to be myself." I say, " I'm just being me!"
