Can I Be Me? - Poem by Natasha McGee

It's not easy being me
Being judged despite adversity
Others seeing what they choose to see
While the invisible chains still bind me
Can I Be Me?
Not the misconception of this Reality
Thinking back on the days
You have PR skills others would say
I let the wrong take away from me
I'm human not this Reality
I make mistakes and others too
God made me imperfect
I guess to shine through
Dislike me for what you want to see
Be condemned by others you'll see
It's not easy
Can I Be Me?
The Peacemaker, not the Enemy
Helping someone if they need a hand
I've been very much so down
God's mercy I do understand
Maybe if we look down, we would be amazed to find
The Humanity that was somehow pushed to the side
It was a oversight, it had to be
Being human is really o.k. to be
I'm just ready to be me
Can I Be Me?
Without This Reality
