I'm scared

Shaking in my boots

What if they don't like me

Or I'm not good enough

I'm short

Ways are strange to some

Papa looked and smiled

Touching my heart 

As he said once more

Be yourself 

Stand tall and proud

No matter what you do

Someone will find fault

See with your eyes

Feel with your heart

Listen to your music

Follow the beat of your drum

Touch each life you meet

Let them see you

If their heart is blind

They will not see

The beauty of life before me
