Let Me Be Me
Author: Amanda C.


Let me go,
Set me free
Let me be
the person I know.
Set me loose,
beyond the horizons,
beyond what's real

What am I?
Where am I?
Trapped inside a body,
I lie
Discriminated,hated, discerned.
I am a person,
not a body,not a shadow,not a sillhouette
I am a mind, a soul, an imagination beyond imagination.

So know me for me,
And treat me for me,
And love me for me,
But let me be me,
before judging me.

Just set me free,
let me go,
let me be the person I know.
Let me be me:
To think free
talk free
And live free.
