Recently I had the privilege of seeing Big Fish during it’s pre-Broadway world premiere. It has actually bumped The Book of Mormon out of first place for my favorite musical. One of the best pieces of art I’ve ever seen.
This is me.
It’s all I know how to be.
I won’t change for you,
This me is brand new.
You can call me names,
But one day I’m gonna have fame.
You can beat me down,
But still I will not frown.
This is who I am, being me,
Being all that I can be.
One of my friends told me that I was his favorite parts of the college we go to. That just made my whole entire night. All I ever want in life is to make the people around me feel really good about themselves because a lot of people make them feel really bad about themselves.
