Driven
Thank you for being my drive to succeed
Your disapproval is the backing I need
Your mocking and your negative laughter
Is all the encouragement I need ever encounter
Proving you wrong and making you see
How much more there really is to me
Has become my ambition; my want out of life
No more can you hurt me like cuts with a knife
For every time you teased and poured scorn
And made me wish I had never been born
I've turned it all round up here in my head
I've changed a negative to a positive instead
No more will I sit and be bait for a bully
Letting dreams run away; not committed to fully
My life is my own to live how I please
So thank you for being my drive to succeed
