The Other I

Amen!

I AM WHAT I AM

I am what I am
I am my own special creation.
So come take a look,
Give me the hook or the ovation.
It’s my world that I want to take a little pride in,
My world, and it’s not a place I have to hide in.
Life’s not worth a damn,
‘Til you can say, “Hey world, I am what I am.”

I am what I am,
I don’t want praise, I don’t want pity.
I bang my own drum,
Some think it’s noise, I think it’s pretty.
And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff’rent angle?
Your life is a sham ’til you can shout out loud
I am what I am!

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There’s one life, and there’s no return and no deposit;
One life, so it’s time to open up your closet.
Life’s not worth a damn ’til you can say,
“Hey world, I am what I am!”

A wonderful person sent me this declaration for my birthday.  I’m tempted to ruin the whole thing by tiresomely trying to explain.  But my guess is that explaining isn’t how one comes to understand this.  Not this.

The written words make me dance even more than the music.  But Shirley Bassey deserves to be heard!

  1. Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!
