Love me or hate me,
Do as you please,
But don’t try to bring me down,
I’m still gonna do me.

Are you mad at my smile,
That I’m always laughing,
Or is it my style,
And that your words don’t effect me?

Are you mad at my walk,
The way my hips move,
Or is it how I talk,
And dance to my own groove?

Are you mad at the way I act,
The way my eyes shine,
Or is it that I have what you lack,
And that all of this is all mine?

Are you mad that you can’t bring me down,
That I just smile and laugh,
Or is it that you can’t make me frown,
And that I don’t need a better half?

Are you mad because you know I’m speaking the truth,
Don’t worry you’re secret’s safe with me,
Because guess what? I use to be you,
So listen, and this will set you free.

I know you’re not mad,
I’m telling you it’s okay to cry,
I know you’re really sad,
So please don’t lie.

I’m not gonna tell you how to live,
But you know this is true,
It’s time for you to forgive,
Be the real you.

Are you mad at me now?
Because I know your secret,
Or are you crying
Because you know I’m not lying?

I like this a lot! Some people are going to dislike you simply because you seem to be okay with yourself, and they aren't. Accepting yourself is hard to do, but necessary to being truly happy.
