Free to Be


Ruth Brown, reporter

I am free to be me

To be whatever I wish

I choose how my life goes on

I am not perfect

But I am me

And that is all that matters


I am loved and true

I wonder about my future to come

I hear nature speak to me

I see words talking

I want to let them all out for the world to hear

I am free to be me


I pretend to be in another world

I feel like I am something more

I know I am not much

I worry about what people think of me

But I do not care anymore

Because I am free to be


I understand the changes I go through

I say to let them happen

I dream of a day

I try to stay the same

I hope it never happens

Because I am free to be
