Be Me

A Poem

What you don’t understand is,

I’m trying my very hardest

to please you with everything I do.

And what you can’t believe is,

I’m not giving up,

though I feel defeated.

I’m not giving this up too soon.


Then I realize

What I’ve been doing wrong.

Now I’ll make it right.


Ima just be me.

No “you” included.

Ima just be me.

Don’t need you anymore.

Cause you just break my down,

tear down my pride.

But you won’t win, because tonight,

Ima just be me.


You don’t see,

baby, I am worth it.

What I see is we’re not perfect.

What you don’t see is,

I am deserving.

What I see is,

this fight’s not worth it


Ima just be me.

No “you” included.

Ima just be me.

Don’t need you anymore.

Cause you just break my down,

tear down my pride.

But you won’t win, because tonight,

Ima just be me.

Watch the lows turn into highs.

Watch the bad days turn into amazing nights.

Watch and see, I can be happy.

Ima just be me,

Ima just be me.


I’m done with getting my feelings played with.

Done being your toy.

Done being the one thing that brings you happiness.

Because you sure didn’t give me none.


Ima just be me.

No “you” included.

Ima just be me,

baby, the truth is,


Ima just be me.

No “you” included.

Ima just be me.

Don’t need you anymore.

(Ima just be me)

Cause you just break my down,

tear down my pride.

(Ima just be me)

But you won’t win, because tonight,

Ima just be me. (Ima, Ima just be me, just be me)

Watch the lows turn into highs.

Watch the bad days turn into amazing nights.

Watch and see, I can be happy.

Ima just be me, (Oh woah)

Ima just be me. (Oh woah)

Oh, Ima just be me.
