I  AM  WHAT  I  AM


A long time ago, you despised and made fun of me,
You tried your all-out effort to belittle myself;
And you almost won over your crooked perception,
Because I was about to surrender but lo, I wasn't!

I did recall one adage which is a reminder,
That once a fighter will always be a fighter;
So I quickly stood up from falling to the ground,
And emerged as a winner from the many tribulations.

I am what I am and what I say and do matter a lot,
So long as I don't bug you then I'm the king of myself;
This is me, this is who I am and no one can dictate,
In the manner of what I wanna do with my life....
