Be Me


Without all the make-up and accessories

This is me

Without all the lights and glamorous things

This is me

I might want to be someone or something I can’t be

But all I can think is, Why would I want to be me?

I’m trapped in a generation

In a life

In a body

Where I can never be let my true—




To be free

Do you think that you could be me?

Life may seem to be easy….

Because of the changes in life for me…

But no, no my life is something that I’m still not controlling

To be me, can be wonderful

Wonderful because my life isn’t as horrible as…

Another child, that’s hungry

That needs a mother

A father

A home

But still, it’s not easy to be me

Be me


Maybe one day I’ll see

What it’s like to actually be……
