Absolutely Yourself

Sorry but you are
absolutely yourself.

You can pretend,
you can defend
but still you are
absolutely yourself.

The way you are,
the things you think,
you are different and
absolutely yourself.

There are still wrongs,
there are still songs,
when I look at you, you
are absolutely yourself.

You can remain,
you can contain,
the world may go mad,
I may be sad but you
are absolutely yourself.
