#123-Finding Myself (for BRIAN and JOHN)


When I act different they say,

"You're not acting like yourself,"

But how the hell do they know?

I REFUSE to be what people expect me to be.

I'm trying to find myself,

And I still don't know who I am yet.

But everyone should just stop!

I'm not going to reach your expectations,

And, honestly, I'm not even going to try to.


I'm going to be whoever I want to be.

The only 3 people I'm trying to impress,

Are me, myself, and I.

So don't tell me you're disappointed in me,

Because I'm not trying to please you.

I'm gonna be the best me I can be!

And I'm not gonna stop until I'm happy.

So hate on me all you want,

I don't mind.

But, just know that, I'm no longer listening.

    😎 You have a lot to offer the world. Never sell yourself short. Always here for you, love ya too!!


    Thanks for this ANGEL ~ Love the video ~ very playful ! I am pleased that you appreciate the love and care that John and I have for you. My concern was that all your poems were TRES TRES NOIRE ! I like this poem because you are actually standing up for yourself and not being dictated to !You have to be yourself ANGEL ~ self awareness and self respect are important aspects of growing up. You are young ~ beautiful ~ talented and full of life ! Please don't change I love you just the way you are. Thanks for sharing your desire to BE YOUR OWN PERSON ~ Love as always ~ BRIAN.
