Happy Being Me


I never tried to be
Something that I'm not
I learned to be satified
With everything I've got

I am no one famous
In the the town where I live
If someone needs a helping hand
I'll try my best to give

I stand in judgement of no one
For who am I to judge
I have no time to hate
That's why I never hold a grudge

I am like most people
Just living day to day
Just trying to exist
As I go about my way

I know that fame and fortune
Will never come my way
That's why I have no problem
Just being me from day to day
