I'm Only Me

When you look at me
take off your rose-colored glasses,
take away any visionary diversion
that might make me bigger than life.
I'm only me.
Nothing else.

I won't let myself be designed
    or molded
    or created by others.
Not by you
    or anyone.

I don't like running races
    with the likes of Clark Kent
to impress some imaginary Lois Lane.
I just want to be me.

Accept me for that
or forget it.
