LOOK AT ME!

Don't turn your back,

Because of a few things that I lack,

I know I'm no perfect son,

But I refuse to run,

From all your pressure,

Just because you think I'm a lesser,

Human than you!

DON'T YOU LEAVE!

Can't take this anymore,

My ideas always being ignored,

Your words cut open my heart,

As I watch you belittle my art,

And as you stomp on my dreams,

To me it seems,

That you never really cared!

LISTEN TO ME!

I'm done sleeping with my fears,

Done with holding back my tears,

I'm tired of listening to you,

Tell me what I have to do,

That's it! You're done!

I'm the only one,

Who's voice you'll hear tonight!

NOT YOUR PROPERTY!

For my soul, you never payed a dime,

Saying you own me is way out of line,

My mind will never be tethered,

My spirit will never become weathered,

I won't let you chain me down,

You look like such a clown,

As you watch me cut my leash!

I WILL BELIEVE!

No more will I doubt myself,

Or put my hope up on a shelf,

Faith will see me through,

I wish you would believe in me too,

I know what's worth fighting for,

I'm walking out the door,

My life waits for me!

I WILL SUCCEED!

No Reserves! Holding nothing back,

No Retreats! Facing every attack,

No Regrets! For the life I live,

Change the world with what I can give,

I'll no longer stand for creativity's murder,

No longer stand and watch another,

Have their passions ground to dust!
