Not Easy Being Me

So Mum and Dad what can I said

I grow and change now everyday

Trying to find out who I am and where I fit in

Looking for answers but where do I begin

You see these changes in me and yet you still don’t understand

Its support I need right now not that back of your hand

I’m not you, only from you and this you must see

Stop trying to make me like you wanted to be,

Let me be just me

I feel your love but it must come free of your conditions

Did you not learn from your parents when you were in the same position

So Mum and dad what can I say

I am growing further away from you every day


Is this natural when you were young were you not the same

Let me be to understand this world of youth

You know it will not be long before I have to find out the truth

So Mum and Dad what can I say

Just love me and let me for now be this way

From the poetry book – Changing The Way I am
