Somewhere between here and there,
just at the intersection of maybe and yes,
I decided to be me.
I have been someone else for a long time.
We have shared a name, but little else.
Appearance is important for him,
impression, acceptance. I\'ve gone along
for the ride.
But now those things are no longer on
my values list. I will be what I will be.
I will sing off key if that pleases me, lay
on the grass at the park and count the
stars, say what I mean and mean what
I say. I will be me.
And every day I will tell myself,
you are you,
and that\'s just fine.
