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.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
