Butterflies begin from having been another
As a child is born from being in a mother's womb
But how many times have you wished you were some other
Someone than who you are
Yet who's to say if all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you
As I can only be me

Flowers cannot bloom until it is their season
As we would not be here unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces You could anymore be
Loving you that you see
You can only be you
As I can only be
Me

I can only be me

    Being yourself and knowing what you are worth is one of the best thing one can have is always good to be true with yourself n you will see that you are the best and that you dont need anyone to tell you how special n kind hearted you really are before discovering anything u discover you n who you really. Tell yourself you are amazing.
