My New Anthem “This is Me” (with song and video)

This video and song will make you smile.

The words are very uplifting, inspirational, powerful and beautiful.

This song and these lyrics are my new anthem.

When I am down on myself I need to sing this song and these words over and over and over and over and over…

I love this beautiful song. My new anthem for my life. I hope you like it too.

Here are some of my favorite lyrics from the song. I must remember these words…

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

This is me
and I know that I deserve your love
’cause there’s nothing I’m not worthy of

This is brave, this is proof
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me

Please watch and listen…

“This is Me” song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” sung by Keala Settle and ensemble (with lyrics)

If you didn’t get a chance to see this performance last night at the Oscars, and even if you did watch it, I think you might want to listen to this one again.

I am just sayin’ it is pretty amazing! So beautiful, uplifting, inspiring and I love the power of the words and the music…

“This Is Me”  Keala Settle and “The Greatest Showman” Ensemble (lyrics)
I am not a stranger to the dark
Hide away, they say
‘Cause we don’t want your broken parts
I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars
Run away, they say
No one’ll love you as you are
But 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
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
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 (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
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me
and I know that I deserve your love
(Oh-oh-oh-oh) ’cause there’s nothing I’m not worthy of
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh)
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is proof
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come (look out ’cause here I come)
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum (marching on, marching, marching on)
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I’m gonna send a flood
Gonna drown them out
Oh
This is me

    1. That song is beautiful and that singer is absolutely amazing. So much talent. I love to witness that kind of talent. I am so impressed and in awe of that. Great idea. Let’s do that. Let’s all sing our way to great mental health. I can’t sing well, but I can make a joyful noise to great mental health. I sure hope so. I will keep singing and listening to music more often. Hugs again, Sue

      1. I just read or read again and was reminded – I should say, that you are a talented singer and can play guitar. That is awesome. I love music but like I said just cannot sing. I know my severe limitations in this area and it is okay. I will continue to make joyful noises and sing at the octave I can and hope the notes don’t get too high. Hugs, Sue
