Let Me Be Me

Each day I promise
to make my faults go away,
to begin a new life.
But I end of on my back foot.

I can't do it.
It's just what I am.
Can't I just be me?
Stop pushing me to change.

Each day the world shocks me,
but I absorb it all,
to keep my balance,
but I end up on the edge.

But I can't do it anymore.
It's just what I am.
Can't I just be me?
Stop pushing me to change.

Each day you look at me,
wishing I'd been different,
a figment of your fantasy.
But you end up despaired.

No! No, I can't do it.
It's just what I am.
Can't I just be what I am?
Don't push me to change.
