I Am Only Me
How can I know that people love me
Yet still at times feel so incredibly lonely
How long must I keep up my guard
When some days it isn't so easy, but rather hard
To keep it up, the guard that knows that you're all wrong
But I've been fighting back for far too long
That now I even forget to let down my defensive guard
An unconscious effort to protect my mind, soul, and heart
This isn't right, you know, or do you truly not have a clue
How thoughtless and unfair are some things you say and do
I am not a bitch, I tell you, nor am I many other things that you imply
My only question is do you really believe the things you lie
Let me tell you something else, I am merely human
Though at times I feel a little less than that, thanks to you, man
So I'll tell you one more thing, I am only me
What else or who else do you really want me to be
yes, go on - hate me, despise me if you must
But inside I refuse to turn to dust
