I am What I am
I am Me
Nothing Can Change
Who I'll be

I will not conform
To images
That others perceive
Me to be

I am not perfect
Not even close
But I try to find
A purpose

I am a mother
hear me roar
hear me cry and rant
What's it all for?

I am a daughter
Hear me plea
What on earth
Do you want from me?

I am a sister
And I try
Not to let wisdom
Pass them by

I am a wife
day to day
I am searching
every way

I am human
In this sea
With its rotting

I am helpless
Drifting silent
Hoping and praying
for contentment

I am what I am
I am me
Nothing can change
Who I'll be.
