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.
