Just Being Me

Just Being Me
I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm happy and your sad
I'm poor but I'm kind
Your rich and fuel of lies
I'm in this world no longer walking in the dark
I am sophisticated with lots to say
getting old age by the years
Old age will not scare me
I will be hated by all my haters
But I don't mine they are blind
I am one of a kind
Yeah that is what I said
I'm short but I'm healthy
So look at me I am oh high in life
I'm smart and beautiful
you will have to take another look
I'm overwhelmed with with love and hate
But I give my heart to my faith
I am only me
that is all that I can be
No more, no less, don’t second guess
I love
I laugh
I live and cry
I've wished at times
that I could die
I could be in paradise
Some days I’m funny
others days I’m not
sometimes I’m in overdrive and can’t stop
I am a loyal and honest friend
You know that I’ll be there until the end
I am a father
My children and grandchildren are my greatest gift
The smiles on their faces always give me lift
I am a romantic
And very sensual, and passionate too
to the love of my life
I can be sweet and shy or sassy and bold
I’m quite a handful so I've been told
I am not perfect
I do have my faults
I get scared
I put up high walls almost ten feet tall
I’m not as forgiving as much as I would like too
I’d sometimes like to be all dressed in white
Standing in the light
But I do live in the world
I am a imperfect human
when I hurt, I hurt deeply
My logic is all my own
at times misunderstood
I don’t always do things for my own good
I have many facets
like a diamond you see
I am only me
That's all I ever want to be
That's all I could ever be
This is the me
The way God made me
What it all comes down to is this
I am where I need to be and that is being me
I am so sophisticated and fuel of Love
I will Always be
that is what it all comes down to
So haters don't lose your mind
Everything's gonna be just fine, fine, fine with me
I feel drunk but I'm sober in life
I'm young but I am reaching my older age
I'm tired but I will not give up on me
My hater talks and talks to bring me down
But I look at them like they are crazy clowns
dancing around
But really they just wish they were me
But that could never be
I am sophisticated and true
There is only one me so please git over it
and move on
I care but I'm restless in my own nights
I'm here but I'm really gone running free in my heart
What it all comes down to is I love me
This the world can see
I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise with so much beauty in life
This is my life
And I'm just being me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
