Sometimes and most of the time,

I just try so hard to be normal

And all I feel is only worse.

I feel trapped, locked inside,

Because whatever this is,

It isn't me.

This is my promise to myself –

"Acceptance and tolerance

Of who you are,

what makes you you

And a burning will

To love that person.

There is only one of you

And you are unique, you are special.

You are not perfect,

Perfection doesn't exist.

But you are the best you can be

And I love you.

You won't care what anyone says

Or feels or thinks or does,

You are you,

And I will love you forever."
