This is who I am.
It walks beside me as I go.
I am proud, as proud as the sky.
I am strong, as strong as stone.
I am rough, as rough as a mountain.
I am me, and I am unafraid to speak my soul.

I spread my wings and soar.
I perch on broken branches.
I fight with tooth and claw.
I defy those who would scorn me.
I am me, and I am beautiful.
