I Am What I Am

Take me for who and what I am

I can be nothing more or less

I am me and that is all

I know how to be

I refuse to apologize for that


Being the daughter of a

strong Southern Woman

I cannot do less than she

did or expected of me

Therefore, I will not

bend to your will


I will not allow you

to continue to intimidate

me with your actions and words


I am a proud GRIT

Girl Raised in the South

and will never be what

you are trying to make me be …
