Trying to be Me


Don't call me an abomination,
Don't tell me I don't belong,
Don't tell me that I'm worthless
Or that I live my life all wrong.
Don't judge me for who you think I am
Or tell me who I should be -
I'm just trying to live my life
I'm just trying to be me.

I didn't wake-up one morning choosing
this path that I'm on now, I wouldn't
have chosen a path with all the
ridicule and hate that I now face,
this is the way I was born, I'm happy
with who I am - why can't you love me
for who I am instead of hating me
for who I'll always be.

The choice was made for me before
I was even born, but yet you still
blame me for nothing I've done wrong.

I love who I love why is that so wrong,
I will not apologize, for there is nothing
to be sorry for - despite what you may believe.

So don't tell me that I'm wrong or that I
don't belong, I'm the same as everyone
else I'm just trying to be me.
