I won't say I'm not opinionated…
Because I am.
I won't say I never pick a fight…
Because I do.
I won't say I never get into an argument…
Because I usually win them.
I won't say I never make fun of people…
Because occasionally I do.
I won't say I have no enemies…
Because I have too many to count.

After saying such about myself,
I look you in the eye and say…

I will say I take a stand for what I believe in…
Because I have a strong faith in my beliefs.
I will say I don't battle needlessly…
Because I don't like seeing innocents hurt.
I will say I argue when there is a cause…
Because I stick up for myself and my friends.
I will say I try not to tease unless it can be handled…
Because I don't like tearing people apart.
I will say that I prefer a friend to an enemy…
Because friends bring colour to my life.

Now, judge me as you wish
Good or bad, it makes little difference to me.
For my opinion of myself carries more weight,
Then those of all the Earth.

Take me or leave me, as I am…
For I shall not change on the whim of another.
I am here to stay, as I stand right now…
For any changes shall come about by my choice alone.
