I'm Me-ee

Willow Smith has done it again with her latest song release, I'm me.  In this song, she eloquently captures the feelings that many teen girls face on the road to learning themselves, accepting themselves and loving themselves, whole. Willow sings with courage and expresses herself with confidence. She is content with her individuality, although I know that it is not this easy for other girls.

So for the girls with no support systems, no positive mentors or role models, take inspiration from Willow. For the girls whose perspectives are limited and can only see the negative images in your hood, barrio, track, development, project or impoverished side of town; believe . If it was up to me, I'd make this song the hood summer anthem. I'd be blaring it from drop-top, pimped out impala's and inside every over-priced, teen fashion store, unhealthy fast food restaurant and beauty/nail salon. Girls everywhere need this. This freedom song has got to be heard.

The message is clear: It's okay to be who you are AND that's who you have to be. No matter how different, weird, strange, awkward or opposite you may be from the norm, you are YOU and you're very special. Shine in your uniqueness. Bask in your eccentric glory. There isn't anyone in this world like U, which means we need U. Willow songs echos the freedom to; Defy the odds, redefine the standard, release your desire to fit in and DO U! After all, it's exactly how you were created to be.......


 Thank you, Willow Smith, for lighting flames of confidence, self-acceptance and freedom in our hearts. The world embraces you. We must now live in the music. Find our lights in the lyrics. Love in our souls. Deep, deep down inside. This is the start of a LOVE revolution.

I Am Me lyrics

(Singing)
I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee

And that's all I can be

I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee

And that's all I can be

I'm free-ee-ee
And you can't stop ME!

I'm free-ee-ee
And that's all I can be-ee-ee-ee

Days pass
I'm try'na find you I'm really am
(I've been lookin')

People don't like the way I dress
So, ?
(I've been lookin')

I've done my hair and it's not just?
(I've been lookin')

Your validation is just not that important to ME!

I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee
And that's all I can be

I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee
It's my born ability

I'm free-ee-ee
And you can't stop me

I'm free, I'm me
And that's all I can be-ee-ee

Night falls
And I find, it's here I am in peace
(I've been lookin')

Makin' friends with spirits lost and it
Set's me free
(I've been lookin')

Express myse-e-elf
'Cuz it's my liberty-y
(I've been lookin')

Your validation is just not that important to ME!

I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee
And that's all I can be (and that's all I can be! )
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/w/willow_smith/i_am_me.html ]
I'm me-ee
I'm me-ee
It's my BORN ABILITY!

I'm free-ee-ee
And you can't stop me!

I'm me-ee
I'm free-ee
And that's all I can be

I am me, I am me, I am me
I am free, I am free, I am free

I am me, I am ME, I an me-ah
I am FREE, I am FREE-AH

I am me, I am me, I am me
I am free, I am free, I am free

I am me, I am ME, I am ME
I am FREE I am FREE!
OOOHHH!

(Talk-singing)
Create youself
Redeem yourself
Renew yourself

Be you, do what you dooo

Hold you head up high
Everything's gonna be alri-i-ight

You're you
I'm me
Let's live in harmony

Co-exist with each other
Love each other

Be yourself
You have to be yourself
Be rea-eal!

Be honest
'Cuz ain't nobody got time for that
They really don't

(Talking)
So, listen to me
Listen to this song

Because this is real facts (heh-heh-heh)
(Laughing)
That will help you move along
(Talking)
Yeah, a-heh!

That's all I wanted to say, so
I love you guys, so much

Hope you like this song and...
You know, YOLO

?, yeah, A-heh-heh!
