This is Me

This is Me, The Reimagined Remix was apart my Peloton playlist this morning and although I’ve heard this song many times before, the lyrics were moving today. Each one sings true. What a beautiful, inspirational message and such a motivational way to start my day. And so, I decided to use the lyrics as a post to serve as a reminder for each of us how great we truly are!

This is Me (The Reimagined Remix)

I am not a stranger to the dark
“Hide away,” they say
“‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts”

You can put your mind to do whatever you wanna do
Just tell yourself that you capable, too
But don’t do things that ain’t even cool
And get rid of them no-good friends that’s enablin’ you
Makin’ you feel like you won’t be nothin’, your life crumblin’
They talk, mumblin’
You gon’ be something, you’re glorious
We’re no gangs, but warriors, we well-known, notorious
They can’t stop you or block you or mock you
They mad ’cause you bad and they not you
You fall down, but get up and skip and hop through
Kick down doors for others to walk through
You have a purpose, to make you say, “Did I do that?” Urkel
Now we callin’ reality virtual
This is who I am, this is me, don’t let them words hurt you

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
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
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me


Another round of bullets hits my skin
Well, fire away ’cause today, I won’t let the shame sink in
We are bursting through the barricades
And reaching for the sun (We are warriors)
Yeah, that’s what we’ve become

I Won’t let them break me down to dust
I know that there’s a place for us
For we are glorious

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
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
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me


I’m alone, I never fit the mold
The world is so cold, hold it down on my own
I’m just tryna reach up to the sky, see the moon
I got confidence ’cause I’m the flyest in the room
And I been knocked down, but I always get up
I had some fake friends, had to go and switch up
Yeah, no pain, no strain, I ain’t chasin’ all the pain
‘Cause I got more to gain, and I’m just tryna make a change
I’m just doin’ me, I’m in my own lane
I fell down a few times, but I’m up again
Marchin’ to another drum, see me crawl, see me run
When they thought that I was done, no, I’m not, here I come
I’m not weak, I get on my feet
No apologies, yeah, this is me

And I know that I deserve your love
There’s nothing I’m not worthy of 

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is bruised
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me


Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum

I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Whenever the world’s gone, whenever the world’s gone
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
Oh, oh, oh, this is me
