live your own life

Walking in his shadows
Makes you like a dependent widow
You should have your share of the cake
Because you were behind its bake
Rebellion is the only way out
You must stand upright and shout
For the freedom you deserve
Enough of rights preserved
You are the mitochondrion
Yet you live in his shadows
And poverty it brings you
Rise up and be conscious
You deserve to be a king in the ring
It is your land to possess
But not until you live your own life
