WRITERS VAULT: I am ME!

TITLE: I AM ME
WRITER: Nida Eghafona
TYPE: POEM


"I am me and not you

I am black and not blue

I am not a substitute I am the actor
I will not be discriminated by any factor"





I am me and not you

I am black and not blue

I am not a substitute I am the actor
I will not be discriminated by any factor
I will stand where others fall
With air and charm standing tall
I will not belittle or discourage me
I am the light that all will see
I have a heart  and 
have a head
So why on earth should I bend
When I can come out high and win
Why should I drench myself in sin?

Will I want to be like you?
When I am a champion too
Or will I wear the clothes you wear
When I love a different brand and hair

Should I hang out with your clique
And move behind and garbage pick
When I can stand and be myself
Not a second rated version of someone else

So I will stand for all to see,
Be it a crowd or only me
 I have learnt to be pure and true
Because I am me and never you
