This song and the video below represent to me the amazing qualities we have in all of us. I saw these beautiful, imperfect people standing tall and proud and brave and the tears poured down my face. I have my own insecurities, and I often feel like the words in this song. “Run away they say, no one will love you as you are…”
But these beautiful children of God show me something different.
I am imperfect, bruised, broken, beautiful, strong, courageous, and…loved.
I am the wallflower, but I am whom I’m meant to be…this is me.
Hide away, they say
‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts
Run away, they say
No one will love you as you are
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious!
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, THIS IS ME!”
