I am

I am everything you don't want me to be. 
Everything you said that I couldn't be. 

Everything that you said wouldn't happen. 

You mocked me. 
Made fun of me. 
Tore me apart. 

I am what I want to be. 
I am a bird being set free. 
You're words mean nothing to me. 

You tried to hold me back, 
To restrain me from what I can do. 
You tried to stop me.

I may not be beautiful, 
I may not be perfect, 
But I am what I want to be.
And I have never lost sight of that. 

Your words were enough to hold me back, 
To stop me from seeing what truly mattered. 
To stop me from reaching heights I thought were impossible.

But that wasn't for long, 
I moved forward soon. 
Left you and your opinions behind. 
Forgot about everything you said. 

I'm not going to sit there and watch the world go by. 
I'm not going to lose sigh of my dreams.
I'm not letting you stop me.

I have dreams that I may not be able to achieve. 
But what's the harm in trying them.
What's the harm in giving them a go?

I will be everything that I want to be,
I will not let you bring me down.


  1. Great poem :)

    You must have a lot of confidence and charisma. I, too believe you can never tell someone what they can't do, so, once again, great poem!
