We all have identities,

Parts of us we cannot change,

Things in us we just embrace.

Some are strong and sporty,

Others sweet and kind.

Not all of us are fighters

Or perfect little girls.

Some of us are quiet

While others stand and shout.

But let us be,

For heavens sake,

The people that we are.

Let us grow

And be ourselves

Without telling us it's wrong.
