Happy to be me

Seven billion individuals… each one different and unlike,
I am certainly not the best one to like.

I am not perfect and perhaps may never be,
But what really matters is that I am happy to be me.

I love myself and all about me,
Sometimes stressed and anxious, seldom carefree.

Considering all my negative and positive aspects I see,
I adore myself and believe in me.

Being my true self brings out the best in me,
Trying to be like someone is not my cup of tea.

So if I had a choice regarding who I want to be,
I’d say, I wanna be me, because I am happy to be me.
