I Will Only Be Me


Through these eyes I have witnessed hardship,

Through this mouth I have tasted the tears,

Through these hands I have felt the bottom,

But through these feet I have stepped on my fears.


Through these ears I have heard the judgment,

Through this nose I have smelt defeat,

Through this heart I have felt the hurt,

But through these legs I have not felt a seat.


For through this hardship I will stand tall,

Through these tears I will not fall, 

Through this bottom I will climb to the top,

And through these fears I will never stop.


Through this judgment I will hold my head high,

Through this defeat I will get up and try,

Through this hurt I will set myself free,

For through this person I will only be me.
