I am all that i can be
No more
No less
Than what you expect of me
Who are you to tell me
What i can do
I can figure it out for myself
That i don't need you
I am independent
I am strong
Now stop telling me
You think I am wrong
I am all that I can be
No more
No less
Than what you expect of me


The author's comments:
This poem is about discrimination and how just becuase someone is a different race, religion, etc, they can do whatever anyone else can. And this poem speaks out that no one can tell them who they should be.
