Why I Am The Way I Am

I am the way i am
Because no one has seen what ive seen
No one has been where ive been
No one understands or did understand
I dont care anymore
I know i should
But you werent there when i needed you the most
But i get it
I wasnt worth your time
Than what am i worth?

My point is
The reason i am the way i am
Is because this is what i had to be
I had to be me
For once i realized i am worth more than your time
I realized i am fine
I am perfect and beautiful the way i am
I dont need you telling me how to be
I dont need you trying to fix me
Why i am the way i am
Is because i want to be nothing more nor nothing less
Than me
