(Raise Your Voice) Me Being Me

Poetry By: Ousma

I added this one to the Raise Your Voice series because it has a message of being yourself, enjoying the little things, and paying it forward. If you're happy, don't keep it to yourself. Bring smiles to other people too :) I hope you got something out of this.

There's a little car racing along

Bright paint sparkling in the sun

And a girl leaning out the passenger window

Tapping a beat on the door to a lively song

Her long hair flies back in the wind

And she has a smile

Big enough for the whole world

Enjoying something simple for a while

The people in town watch her go

And smile quietly to themselves

Remembering the infectious grin

That helped ease a deep sorrow

There's a tiny little school

Nestled in a sleepy little town

And a girl who dances down the halls

Worried about herself over what's cool

Shining with an aura of content

She sings her favorite songs without shame

She loves herself for who she is, and with

A spunk in her step she walks above the high school game

Her peers watch her go about her day

Handing out a million smiles

As if they're going out of style

The love in her heart helping them on their way

There's an army of dark clouds overhead

Dropping as much rain as they can

And a girl twirling in the street

She doesn't want to be stuck on the couch instead

As she dances in time to the thunder

Her laughter fills the sky

Crashing through the puddles

Full of so much spirit she could fly

Her neighbors watch from the window

No longer angry about the relentless rain

They laugh and reach for their boots

And out into the so-called bad weather they go

This girl does not want attention

She's just living life the way it was meant to be

With a heart full of vigor

And a joy for simple things

Outspoken, unique and free

This is just me being me.
