There was a time in my life,
Not so very long ago,
That I was afraid.
I was afraid to be me.
I was afraid to be me because
I didnít want society to see how
I really looked.
I wore a weave to cover up my
Bald head. I wore makeup to cover up
My blemished skin. I wore contacts
To cover up my brown eyes.
I wore baggy clothes to cover up my
Voluptuous figure. I wore a frown
To cover up my imperfect teeth.
I did all of that, because I was afraid
To be me.
I was afraid to let people hear what I REALLY thought
For fear of being laughed at.
I was afraid to let people taste what I REALLY knew
Because I didnít want them to categorize me as a know-it-all.
I was afraid to let people see how I REALLY walk
For fear of them thinking that I considered myself to be "all that"
Because I was afraid to be me,
I created a superficial image
To display to society.
But I finally saw the light.
I realized that You made me in Your own image
And Youíre not afraid to be YouÖ
And since Youíre the only person
I have to answer to,
Why should I be afraid to be me?
Iím not afraid anymore.
I AM BEAUTIFUL!
And I donít care who knows it.
I AM ME. And if people donít like it, tough.
Iíve been delivered from people.
