I am I…
Do not change me, condemn me, nor put me down.
Accept me for what I am,
No, you need not agree with me,
But accept me, for I am total in being.
I have my faults
I have my guilts
But that is who I am.
Perfect I will never be!!!
Allow me to be uninhibited,
DO NOT PRESURE ME
Into feeling what I do not feel.
Accept me when I am flying high,
As I have accepted you
When you were flying high.
Do not put me down,
Nor make me feel unhappy about me.
I AM I…
And I like being what I am…
