I Have To Be Who I Am

I look at myself
And I think
I wish I wasn't
This way
Or that way

But then I realize
That try as I might
I cannot be
Who I am not
So why not
Give the
Real me
An actual shot
Why not
Cheer for once
And believe in
What I've got
Because who knows
And once I do that
So much clearer
May become my path
I know I am not
There yet
But if I follow my dreams
I believe
One day i will be
I just have
To remember
No matter what
Others may
Think of me
To never stop

Believing in me

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
