i am me


i am free
i am me, the real me
i am no longer afraid of speaking up
voicing my opinion, saying my say
i am me
i am not a yes girl

my wings have grown, i am fearless
i am free
i am not empty and i am not alone

i have taken all i am and smiled at the world
i walk with my head high
i am no longer submissive
i am me

you broke my spirit
you hurt my soul
you showed me how not to be me

but here i am
i am liberated
i am free

free to be me
