I Only Want To Be Myself - Poem by Slava Olchevski

I only want to be myself
I am tired of being just a drone
To be a part of a dreadful Matrix
Pretending to be clever and strong

I only want to be myself
To laugh and cry as a child
Who ate the hottest, bad-ass sauce
And then pretends that it’s mild

I only want to be myself
To live the life to its fullest
To wag my tail as a happy dog
And think my bitch is the coolest

I only want to be myself
Make every day a surprise
And see your beautiful shining,
Sparkling loveable eyes

I only want to be myself
And raise my voice so strong
When it tolls the bell in Moscow
The echo is heard in Washington

I only want to be myself
And here is the hardest part
The last step in this transformation
Is not for the faint of heart

I only want to be myself
I am ready to pay full price
If you would want me to die for it
I never think twice

I only want to be myself
This flesh is my disguise
When time will come
Like butterfly
I finally
will rise!
