I am who I was born to be.

This evening I watched a documentary on Susan Boyle, the Scottish woman who took the world by storm with her beautiful singing voice in the talent show "Britain's Got Talent".  In this documentary called "I Dreamed a Dream, the Susan Boyle Story" she sang a song that was written especially for her called Who I Was Born to Be.  I've included a link here to the song as I think the lyrics are very meaningful.

The song is beautifully sung. I admire this woman. She inspires me and I'm glad for her success.

Susan Boyle singing Who I Was Born to Be.

Here are the lyrics:
When I was a child
I could see the wind in the trees
and I heard a song in the breeze
it was there, singing out my name

But I'm not a girl
I've known the taste of defeat
and have finally grown to believe
that it all comes around again


Though I may not
know the answers
I can finally say I'm free
And if the questions
led me here, then
I am who I was born to be

And so here am I
Open arms and ready to stand
I've got the world in my hands
And it feels like my turn to fly


When I was a child
there were flowers that
bloomed in the night
Unafraid to take in the light
Unashamed to have braved the dark


I am who I was born to be
I am who I was born to be.

I'm adopting this song as "my song".
