Being me

Should I be myself?

Should I accept beauty like I accept beauty in everyone?

No need to be insecure,

if, in me, I just feel sure.

Should I change?

Should I mould myself so I'm what guys want,

so I fit in, I'm successful,

this quaking heart wants to be restful.

I've always wanted to be beautiful to someone else,

but what if i'm beautiful to me,

what if that makes my heart breathe,

no more tears on my sleeve.

People say things they don't mean,

People are mean and I wear my heart for everyone to see,

guarded, I should be guarded, strong,

I won't seek my love song.

I wonder what it feels like to love and be in loved,

if it feels like the air tonight,

for it breathes new winds into me,

and I want to be all I can be.

For when love comes, I'll out pour my heart

like a river to the sea,

who can say who I should be?

What's so wrong with being me?
