Yeah, That's Just Me

I look at myself in the mirror,

And I’m starting to realize who I truly am:

Kind to everyone who needs a smile

An imagination that never sleeps,

Determination at its peak,

Yeah, that’s me.


I look at myself in the mirror,

And I see happiness,

I see success,

I see a friendly disposition,

I see a girl who refuses to give up,

I see a girl who doesn’t want to grow up,

I see a girl who learned how to forgive,

I see a girl who prays for happiness and good health for all,

Each and every day,

I see a girl who prays for their friends,

And the prayers are always answered.

I see a girl who is hopelessly confused,

But even more insecure,

Yeah, that’s just me.



I put on a smile,

For all the world to see,

For better or for worse,

My heart breaks when I

See a sad face in my presence,

For then I feel sad and depressed, too.

No one really knows, except me,

How much good a simple smile can do.

Yeah, that’s just me.



So now I ask myself:

Who am I really?

But, the answer is quite simple:

I am everyone’s smile,

And my heart breaks when a friend is having a bad day.

I only achieve success,

By pure willpower and determination…

Passion for my writing is what motivates me…

To be me.

Yeah, that’s just me.
