I AM ME...
I AM ME…
I am me…
The only me the world will ever have
No more no less.
I have loved
I will love again
I have lived
I’m living still.
I cry and sometimes wish I could die
I laugh like there’s no tomorrow
Some days I’m funny
Other days not so much
Sometimes I’m in overdrive and can’t stop.
I am loyal
And stick like a tick to my friends
I am a hopeless romantic
Sassy and bold in my own way
I’m quite a handful
Or so I’ve been told.
By virtue of being a listener
I talk less
Keep to myself
Secretive in a certain way
Talk better when I write
Enjoy spending time with myself
And I’ve been called a weirdo for being me.
I have many facets
Like a diamond you see
I am strong willed
I never say never
I believe in my dreams
I believe there is absolutely nothing I cannot be or do
And I always take the moral high road and try to see the good in others.
In the midst of all that cuteness
I’ve been told I’m sporadically rude
I’m not a perfect person you see
I come with a lot of flaws
Most times I get scared and put up high walls
I’m not as forgiving as I would like to think
Because when I hurt
I brood and hurt deeply
And don’t know when to let go.
I have a problem with having fun
I’m stiff and rigid
I can be as annoying as it gets
Or so I’ve been told
I would rather watch a million football games
And Loud House on Nickelodeon
Than those Fashion and Telemundo channels
Yea I know right?
Not to mention I have the tendency to over-react
With an over-dramatic imagination
Tsss… even I agree I’m a weirdo.
I am me you see
I’m not trying to be like you
I love me for me
I am not wealthy but guess what?
I never lack
I am not that smart but guess what?
This weirdo makes her own decisions
Pay her bills
My logic is my own
Even though it’s often misunderstood
All I want is to be a better me.
I may not be as fancy as you
It makes no difference to my life
And there’s a reason why God didn’t make me like you
I am me
The original me
The irreplaceable me
Down to earth
But just me.
I am Joy Anzzy Isa

I am a human being with all my flaws and with all my goodness
I am unapologetically me.

This piece is dedicated to people like me.
People who thrive every single day to remain true to themselves even though society thinks they are never good enough.
People who dare to dream and hold on to it in spite of what society thinks.
People who believe there is still good in the world.
Did anyone call you a weirdo lately? Guess what, me too.
So to every single one of us out there, cheers to being weird.
