This Is Me

Location

Hastings
United States

You all look my way, but none of you see.

I am the girl no one truly understands.

I have the love of him and Him and them,

but what is it if no one understands?

I cry on his shoulder.

I pray to Him.

I try to tell them that this is who I am.

I cannot change, and I will not.

I am who I am, tears and all.

I do not expect you to understand.

I do not expect help from you.

I just want you to understand.

I am broken, but I am not helpless.

I am strong. I can get through this.

There are not many that see me

with no mask and no filter.

But those who do, are scared to lose me.

And that's who I am.

I am that woman that you love,

That woman you cannot stand to lose.

If you do not understand that,

Please do not give up.

Because I am just doing what I know.

I am just being myself.
