I'm done with being
who everyone else wants me to be.
I'm through with this conformity,
it simply is not me.
I have my own opinions,
though some quite strong and bold,
And I'm ready to have them respected,
not shot down before they're even told.
All because I'm young,
I'm expected to be unaware.
Expected to watch everything go wrong,
and just not give a care.
And though it scares me more,
than I can ever express to you.
I'm going to be who I wanna be,
and you should try it too.
