Showing you I can be weak doesn't make me so,
When you see my dark side, it doesn't mean I'm screwed up,
I am strong and self confident enough
To let you, and the world,
See me as I am.
I know who I am,
I have no illusions,
no shame, no reason to hide.
I am at ease with myself.
This is no time for fairy tales;
I refuse to tell you what you want to hear
because you need to feel good,
Or so you might like me more.
I have no need to debase myself by doing that.
Don't put the blame on me,
Or make it seem that I am at fault.
Don't make me look bad
Because you cannot handle me.
Be the man you want to be,
Your ego problems are not my concern.
To make you feel good and important in every conversation
Is really not my role.
Changes are good; I embrace them,
Growing in the process of love is amazing,
But you'll never know that.
There is no need for panic,
No reason to run away,
No room for hard feelings at all,
So thank you for making it easy for me.
