I am I
Do not change me
         condemn me
         nor put me down
Accept me for what I am
No… you need not agree with me
          But accept me
for I am total in being
          I have my faults
          I have my guilts
But that is who I am
          Perfect I will never be
Allow me to be uninhibited
           Do not pressure me into feeling what I do not feel
Accept me when I am flying high
           As I have accepted you when you were flying high
Do not put me down… nor make me fell unhappy about me
I am I and I like being what I am
