Simply Me

by Natalie84   Aug 24, 2009

I can only be me
There's no room for change
No time for pretending
No time to waste
Trying to be you
Trying to please you
Or trying to keep you
Love me as I am
Take me as I come
Choose to walk away
I'll be content on my own

Love me or hate
Take me or leave me
You're free to go
Welcome to stay
Make your choice
But don't try to harm me
For I will not choose war
I love you, care for you
Need you and want you
But am capable of making it
Without you

Listen to my voice
Hear my words
Understand my heart
Love me, accept me
For this is me
Nothing more, nothing less
I am me
Appreciate me
Believe in me
Or simply leave me

I will not change
Cannot transform for you
Refuse to compromise my heart
Accept it or don't
I can only be me

I was created to be me
Meant to be thee
Happy, simply being me

    I like this because it's not typical poetry. it speaks loud and clear how you feel about being you. The repitition creates strong feelings, and some of the words you use evoke emotions that can help readers relate to your poem. great job, and looking forward to reading more of your work.
