Against Me

 Because of who I am
I'm forced to fight 
twice as hard as any man
 Because of my mistakes
the good within me you fail to see
you claim my light to be darkness
 You cut off my wings
in hopes to watch injured prey be eaten
hoping that there is no escape 
 Curse my name
in hopes my spirit won't soar
so my voice becomes silent
 Despite all 
you wish to see me covered in dirt
it will never happen
until you're proven wrong
