I refuse to live in the shadows of another not my sisters, not my husband, not my brothers, nor mother I live to be me never will I be a carbon copy for society sake My destiny is only mines to make peircing eyes with fire in their blood look upon me, they say out of love A love so superficial, not unconditional but a love geared to tear me down a love laced in hateful deceptions I live to be me I am so many great things Out of the crack of darkness I came envelope in an orb of protection I entered through the crown pain and happiness surrounded me as I took my first breath of humanity I came alone I live to be me Determination, complications, frustrations, but dedications to my mission at hand to lived, to grow, to experience, to know That no person owns the rights of me why do people spend some much time analyzing the deeds of others Not actually looking at the soul but attacking the cover I LIVE TO BE ME!!!! One thing I came to learn on this walk of life is That people passionately adore anothers pain and strife For some unexplained reason it makes them feel all good inside I guess it takes the attention off their own pain And pride to point, to judge, to humiliate ones name Out of the mass intelligence of the creator I came to exist He sent me off with his blessings and a kiss One I shalt never forget Deep in the core of my soul he gave me the knowledge I needed to know my purpose in life to not be controlled but to live, to learn, to fall, to get-up But most important to grow I LIVE TO BE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who are you really? When looking down the barrel of a loaded gun who will you judged then? Perhaps you'll turn and run! You try to own my mind But my spirit remains free! I LIVE, I GROW, I KNOW, I LOVE TO BE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
