Our parents our schools, society,
We have grown up with them telling us who we should be,
Your Religion your culture, all the way through,
Without all that input, who is it in you?
Who is it you’ll follow, like sheep till the end
For it’s a new fashion, a massive new trend!
To THINK for oneself, BE who YOU really are
When you can find YOU, you’ll transcend really far
Don’t listen to rumours, they fill you with doubt
Find out the truth, of what your life’s about!
You can only do this, by following your dreams
Don’t fall down with knock backs, as hard as that seems
Believe in yourself, and follow your goals
To get to the top, you will fall down some holes
But don’t be discouraged, see yourself through
Rise to the TOP! And find the YOU that’s In YOU!!!!
