The real you

My best friend and my enemy
All and one the same
The men in white coats,with stricken faces
Tell me ' Its all in my brain '
This is my spirit, a part of me that has always been here
They try to shove brightly colored pills down my throat
To be sure the real me i wont share
Why put a soul in handcuffs and medicate my voice 
Because i don't fit into society's ego arrogant bubble
At least give me a choice
She's different from the rest, that will never do
Belittle, mock and medicate 
No one will ever see the real you

Little bluebird

Hide your head under your wing little bluebird
The storm wont last for long
Soon the sun will break the clouds
You will heal and be strong
Your tiny body is battered 
Yet your will to live goes on
Keep fighting little bluebird
The storm wont last for long

Expectations

Do you know what I'm sick of?
Expectations 
Expected to live this picture perfect life
My life is not a post card
I do not own a picket fence
And if I did it would probably be black
And broken 
But that's ok
sometimes my life can be terrifying 
I spent 36 years trying to be someone I'm not
Waiting for the Pat on the head of approval i never got
What is it that I'm doing so wrong ?
Why is it that my efforts are never quite enough ?
So one day I decided 
No more
My heart is good and my soul is kind
This will help me sleep at night
An overachiever my whole life 
But who for ?
Who am I trying to impress ?
It wasn't me 
Because all that ever did was make me miserable 
So I've dropped the act and this is now me
If you don't like it then it's fine 
I seek no ones approval but my own
You see I wasn't acting before
That timid girls still in there 
But she deserves some peace
To know that she's enough 
Not for anyone else 
But she's enough for me
