I will not hide behind a degree! I will not curl up behind a label! I will not waiver in my faith I will trust him, remain calm and stable I will not drown my sorrows in wine I will not escape my pain in cocaine lines I will not get lost in my TV. But i will be free and just be me I will radiate with joy I will respond to negativity with love and coy I will break these prison walls If you get short with me I shall remain tall. I will not give you any of my power I will not give you my kindness to devour I will not allow this treason I will love you for no reason I will rise above this doubt I will have courage and just come out I will move forward and keep going There is now way that i will stop If i have to crawl, squeal, kneel or hop I will live I shall not die I will rise above And kiss the sky
