I was put on this earth as i am

AS I AM

Forgive me...

I didn't realize 'til now
That our cold self-righteous words could hurt you so
I was taught very young by those who came before me
To fear and  condemn the things I don't know

There is fear in the hearts of those who would change you
Fear of the light that shines from you
They don't know that light was designed by God
Who gave it a brilliant and beautiful hue

And to those who would change you or send you away
You must proudly stand your ground and say:

I was put on this earth as I am
I was put here to fill the world with magic
I know all the love with which i was born
Can conquer your taunting can conquer your scorn

I was put on this earth as I am
I was born with my own special blessings
I'll let them shine and not give a damn
I was put on this earth as I am!

There is envy in those who recklessly judge you
Wishing their hearts could love like yours
They don't understand they can reach within
And find all the love forgiveness restores

And to those who condemn you with fury and shame
You must strongly plant your feet and proclaim:

I was put on this earth as I am
I was put here to live as His creation
And I know I'm loved in virtue and sin
I'm calm and content within my own skin

I was put on this earth as I am
I was born with my own special blessings
I'll let them shine and not give a damn
I was put on this earth as I am!
