I Am Who I Am

I am who I am
too old
too fat
for today I am perfect
pain racks my body
rage runs through my mind
at things that are not right
I am who I am
I feel love
I am loved
I am full of passion
I have HOPE and FAITH
and THEY CANNOT take that away
from me
AS MUCH as they try
as long as my heart beats
as long as my spirit exists…
