Near Perfection

Sun, 12/01/2019 - 17:12 -- Bisma

Why do I care?
Why do I give them the time of my day?
I'm greater than that.
I'm stronger than that.
I'm not the one they say I am.
I'm different and I'm the only one.
No one in this world matters, just me.
I will fight for my rights.
I will fight for what is right.
I will fight because I do know how to.
I won't let them take over.
I know I can do it.
I won't let them win.
I know I am stronger than the shadows.
I'm stronger, greater and marvellous.
I'm stronger than those that laugh at me.
I'm stronger than those that kill me inside.
I'm stronger than those that take away my soul.
Stronger are those who know their worth.
Walking in the rain, thinking about death.
Taking step by step but having no reason.
Trying to talk but don't know about what.
Expressing my thoughts but why would anyone listen.
"You are who you are", they say all the time.
My love, I ask you today who do you think I am?
Trying to hide but show more than anything.
Let me pretend I am everything.
Let me pretend I am the best person in this world.
I won't be scared, I don't want to.
I won't cower behind, I promise myself now.
I'm everything and I love myself.
I'm everything and I am proud of who I am.
They won't bring me down anymore.
I won't let anyone hurt me no more.
I'm who I am give or take.
Don't try to change me because I am near perfection.
