[I strive, and I dive, and eventually, I will arrive.]
I refuse to be less than I am.
To be quiet when I am not
To hold fast when I want to RUN PAST.
Not me, not last.
I scream for air,
I reach for release,
I fight for all that's worthwhile,
And pursue everlasting peace.
I will not suppress
To look like the rest
I will not imagine someone other than me
When I look in the mirror to see
I want to see me.
I will not select something other
I will not pretend
I will ask for what I want
And you shouldn't ask any less from me.
As I ask
I too want YOU to be free
Free to be you
In every color and shape and size
In every magical surprise
To be us
