I Want to Be Me


I am a girl often outspoken and misunderstood.

I am a girl who is stubborn.

I am a girl who is easily distracted, confused, and overwhelmed.

I may seem stoic on the outside, but I am quite fragile on the inside.

Please understand me.

Don't judge me.

Don't label me or assume.

You really don't know the half of me or my life.

Only 'cuz I choose not to show it.

But I want to learn new things.

And I want to be free.

But most of all I want to be loved.

I want to be me.
