Because Who Is Youer Than You? - Poem by Aisha Mone't

You think you know me, but do you really?

Because who are you to tell me who I can and cannot be?

I let my critics go and wonder at the simplicity of simply being me.

Because who can be a better me then me? And who could be a better you? Surely not me!

For I like to think I am a simple person, full of simple things and who could be a simpler me?

I am priceless, so don't just label me.

I am beautiful, so don't tell me I'm just pretty.

I love myself, so don't tell me you just like me.

All in all I am me, and there is no one I would rather be.
