I Am As I Am - Poem by Larisa Rzhepishevska

I think it doesn't sound strange

If I don't want to be changed

But... just to be as I am.

I often hear some people say:

You ought, you should, you must.

You should work hard

And do everything fast.

But...I am thankful to the Lord

And take it as a reward

To be as I am.

There are some people

Who want to meet me

They say they need me

But...most of them greet me

As I am not.

I do not blame anyone,

I do not complain,

But...there is something

I would like to remain:

To be as I am.

I can forgive,

But... would like to be forgiven.

I can believe,

But... would like to be believed.

I can love,

But... would like to be loved.

I can understand,

But... would like to be understood

At any state of my mood.

And...to be as I am.
