thank god for me

i do this a lot. i thank god for me. like axl (or axel) on "the middle," my reaction to a lot of things that i do (or think) is an act of telling myself that i am awesome.

i'm awesome

let me take a lyric from prince: "it's been a long time coming, but now that it's here, all you non-believers better fear me...cuz i'm willing and i'm able".

it's been a long time coming. i've never had reason to be psyched for myself. as a little boy, my mom cut my hair too long and it was not uncommon for people to think that i was a girl. as a little boy who was sometimes mistaken for a girl, my sister refused to acknowledge me as masculine and called me a GRIT ("a mixture of a GIRL and an IT"). i did not excel at sports, i really didn't excel at anything manly...or anything at all, for that matter. i was not the man of my dreams, that's for sure. i might as well have stuck a laurel-flower in my hair and used the girls' bathroom, like cartman stuck a barrette in his hair and used the girls' bathroom. like i use the girls' bathroom in public places now. oh, when i saw that episode of "south park," i was like "they stole my idea - eric cartman and dylan terreri had the same reasoning when they used the girls' bathroom!".

i never had any masculine identity, i had no love for myself as a man, and i had no masculine self-respect...but i didn't want a sex-change, i didn't want to wallow in my masculine shortcomings by accepting myself as the antithesis of "masculine," i wanted to accept myself as man-enough not to gawk at other men who were regarded as "supreme".

it's been a long time coming, but i can honestly say that i'm an awesome man. well, this song's for anyone who doesn't want to be around my adolescentile eccentricities.

i know that you'd like me to change
ooh, but i'm a great one - don't you leave you amazed?

how many times are you psyched for what your world's about?
i don't have to go out or get with the times or have my penis aroused
can't you believe me? this dude's not needy

vow that i'm wrong - i stand by myself for fun-days
ooh, if you're half-step down from my high, could you keep it quiet?

who's bleeding and who's achieving?

just erase me from your days, please
few do wish for time to be alone
but i heart all of me...but somehow you don't want that for me
come on, mommy - hear me, mommy
ignore the change you want for me
i'm trying to make you see
mommy, you've just got to let me be

i'm not going out with you anymore,
you make it weak, my heart, i'm feeling embarrassment
won't stop with your proud-type scorn
when i mock womens' pride, what are you mad for?

just erase me from your days, please
few do wish for time to be alone
but i heart all of me...but somehow you don't want that for me
come on, mommy - hear me, mommy
ignore the change you want for me
i'm trying to make you see
mommy, you've just got to let me be

let me be

"son, you're a bastard to mock our team"
"son, you're a bastard, oh"
"i'm finished, i'm finished"

just erase me from your days, please
you do shit that slights fem-toughness, oh!
love me not, you beat me somehow with the mock'ry i read
don't, don't, don't berate me
nothing gnarly, you're mean for mocking muscle that shames no guys' esteem
i tried to change you, dear
hatred, i don't want to be near me
