Musical Mondays: This Is Me (The Greatest Showman)

This Is Me by Keala Settle | Musical Mondays | Inspiration | The Greatest Showman | RachelPoli.com

I thought we were due to have another Musical Monday post. There’s been so much hype around The Greatest Showman and while I have yet to see the movie, I’ve listened to the soundtrack over and over again.

All the songs are so inspirational and I think it speaks to anyone who wants to inspire people, make a difference in the world, or who are just creative at heart.

The song This Is Me is performed by Keala Settle and she has a beautiful voice. It’s all about being you, shooting for your dreams, and not letting anyone say you can’t do something or get in your way.

When you’re trying to make a living as a writer, blogger, freelancer, whatever… it’s really hard to stay positive. You just have to take it day by day. Work hard and stay focused. Remember you can do it no matter what. Your time will come to shine.

I chose this particular video for the song because Keala was nervous to sing the song. I felt as though the song taught her a lesson in a way. I found it inspirational. The actual song doesn’t start for about a minute in, but I recommend listening to the whole video anyway.

Enjoy.

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
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
This is me
and I know that I deserve your love
’cause 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 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
