I deserve to be free
I need to be free why am I chained!
Is all this something that is planned
to leave me confused and strained,
and submitting to being tamed.
What did I do to deserve to be stoned!
My sexuality is not to be blamed
Like everyone else I was also made
to love whoever I find passionate
I am walking tall but dead inside,
my soul and spirit were ripped apart
the day he found me playing alone outside,
in me he forced himself even when I cried!
I need to be free why am I pained!
My heart was clean why is it stained!
Yes I am a lesbian I am not straight,
does that mean I deserve to be raped?
Twinkle little ones you can shine.
Never let the world try to assign
you in categories that don't define
the true person that you are inside
