There are some days I hideaway.
Worrying about what I might say.
My age some days I do not know.
To others, it will possibly show.
On the days that I choose to hide.
Is when I'm showing my happy side.
Those days I show hyperactivity.
I mean no harm, it is still me.
I won't say hewo or otay.
I won't ask you to come out and play.
That part of me it will not show.
Then again I never know.
My true friends will not depart.
Even when I'm young at heart.
A friend told me not to feel shame.
It's not my fault, I'm not to blame.
There are sides of me you have not seen.
Please don't be alarmed, I would never be mean.
That's because I always care.
It's only love I want to share.
Sharing this has stirred up my nerves.
To know all of me I think you deserve.
I'm tired of hiding and want to be free.
Please don't think of me differently.
I AM ME
