    I am not like you!
    I do not think like you
    or talk like you
    I am not you!
    But I envy you
    The way you strut like you
    know all about you
    and all of you seems to know it too!
    I am not like that
    I dont look like that
    Who am I anyway?
    Cause I cant tell you that!
    Im young but overaged
    on time but underpayed
    And you walk in half an hour late
    with a smile on your face
    I am not that brave!
    But I am all that it takes to be who I am!
    My thoughts dont think
    thoughts of me
    more than I am
    And one day
    what I am will equal what I tell you i will be
    Beautiful and pure
    Strong able to endure
    Loved and loving more
    See, maybe you were born that way!
    But I am not like you!
    I've had teach myself to unhate myself
    to love myself,
    to live,
    I am not like you!
    I am what I am
    I'm not even what I will be yet
    And niether are you!
    But I will not be you!
