I am different
I am nervous with sweaty hands
Scared to get in front of the class and share my knowledge
I am the quiet one, but then I realize,
I am me
I realize everyone is different with struggles
Now I rise
I stand up and speak for myself
I am no longer afraid, I am confident.
I let the world know who I am, the great being I am
I am the one who smiles, who loves, and cares
I am human.
