I am what I am


I am a butterfly

You can’t shut me in a jar and ask me to fly.

I am a diamond

You can’t polish me and expect me to look like a pearl.

I am a mirror

You can’t see yourself in it and change my reflection.

I am a book

You can’t put me on a shelf and try to read me.

I am a star

You can’t bring me to the ground and hope for me to shine.

I am a fish

You can’t teach me to swim and leave me to flush.

I am what I am

You can’t change me unless you challenge me.
