I want to be accepted, I would be lying if I said different.
I want to be respected for the fact that I am different.
I want you to understand that I am weird
But that my weirdness makes me unique
I want you to marvel in my uniqueness and not think of me as a freak.
I think a lot. So, unfortunately I am analyzing what you think of me.
And as much as I love myself, I still wonder what you think of me.
I am strong and I know myself.
But I still can’t stop myself from wondering what you think of me.
Probably cause I like you
Yep, that is why I care.
Cause if I did not, I would not give a shit.
So, yep that is it.
Since, I like you, I want you to like me too.
Not just the wonderfully crafted image that you see
But I want you to like me in all of my dirty.
I am not afraid to tell you and show you who I am.
But I am still a little afraid that once you know
That you won’t accept me for who I am.
Yet, I am fearless
So I offer you my truth
Hoping that you accept me
And that you have enough courage to be vulnerable too.
I call the man a lie, who does not want to be liked
But I call the man a fool who refuses to tell the truth
Cause I can’t control what you think or what you do once you know my truth
I can only tell it, and you have to decide what you will do.
And if you decide to not accept me, I am comfortable with that too.
It’s called being vulnerable and I accept the challenge.
