I will be who I want, my life is just my own.
Don’t tell me what I can or can’t, I’ll reap what I have sown.
You say I am rebellious, well then rebel I will be,
There’s really nothing you can do, for finally i’m free.
Anywhere you care to look, a free-er being you will not find,
For you can have everything, but you cannot have my mind.
I’ll believe and hold my faith in what I think is true,
I’ll love all I think is good, wont hate because you do.
I can walk with company, or I can walk alone,
But I will walk my own path, not one that you have shown.
Holding my head high up, every barrier I will cross,
If you don’t believe it, well, that’s just your loss.
Hit me with your hardest, push me to the ground,
I will get back on my feet, you will not see a frown.
Who think I can’t are many, who think I can are few,
But that’s not going to stop me, I’ll prove what I can do.
Soon you’ll know, there’s more to me than perceived at first sight,
Soon you’ll know I’m not the kind to give in without a fight.
I do not fight for power, nor for wealth and fame,
If such things I did fight for, all I’d get is shame.
I fight for love and hope, for understanding and peace,
Greed for other selfish things, I know wont ever cease.
As I walk my own made path, I have but one bequest,
Many a mind wont be like yours, still show them some respect.
What if a brilliant soul cannot put up a fight?
We’ll then lose that brilliant soul, forever lose it’s light.
Each human is a different color, each soul a different hue,
I can see the beauty here, so why can’t you see it too?
We were not born as us, born unique, merely to follow,
If we cannot be ourselves, our lives will be just hollow.
Let us all be free today, and free all those we chain,
Let us all choose our own journey,taking our own train.
Finally I have freed myself, this cannot be more true,
Can you also do the same, can you claim freedom too?
