Being Me

More by this author
I wake up today like I always do
Feeling the same, my thoughts are on you
I’m such an idiot changing who I was
Didn’t change how you look at me, nothing ever does

But everything has its time nothing stays the same
I’m sure that I’ll continue playing your game
I’m shaking so hard I can barely stand
Looking out towards you, can’t you just take my hand?

What are the odds that someday you’ll see
I’m the perfect girl by just being me
But I won’t judge I’ll just sit and wait
For you to pass by, just don’t be late

I hope you dont mind but i loved this poem so much that Im using it for a poetry project. 

We needed a sonnet that we could relate to and this has always been my favorite.

And the way you win is deciding to live your life for you and making it worth it, making all of the little fairytales make your life one :)
