I am me
Authenticity is freedom’s key
I am me
No matter the occasion or day
Because love lets my heart splay

All you need is love and acceptance
So find joy in yourself
Even though the world has many angels
Your presence makes a difference

Wouldn’t you rather be free than caged?
Don’t do it for someone else’s praise
Be the energy that lets love’s magic raise
And you’ll shine brighter than you can ever pray

Light illuminates all our sides
This journey is up and down in all its rides
With bravery I can dream
And with confidence I can gleam

Just be who you are, you are enough
Bind yourself with joy and trust
Love others but let yourself be loved too
You are your best friend through and through
