  • 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 have a little pride in
    My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
    Life's not worth a damn till you can say
    Hey world I am what I am.
    • Song I am what I am [1]

  • Never be bullied into silence.
    Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
    Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself. [2]
