    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
