Who am I?
I wanted to be a vet so I could save the animals, but I could not stand their cries
I wanted to study the ocean to see its wonders, but I was afraid of the depths
I wanted to be a runner so that I could feel the breeze, but I could not take the loss of breath



Who am I?
I wanted to be a speaker so people could hear my words, but no one would listen
I wanted to be an actor so I could feel other than sadness, but I froze on the stage
I wanted to be a singer because music brought me peace, but my voice cracked under pressure



Who am I?
I wanted to be a lover so that I would feel cared for, but no one would love me back
I wanted to be a strong person so people would look up to me, but I cry myself to sleep
I wanted to be a good person so people would like me, but I always make mistakes



Who am I?

I am me, I will be me, and I will be free
