I’m not a perfect little box
The way that people organize
I’m more than just the basic locks
A blonde, brunette, whatever guise
 
I’m more than klutzy, more than fun
I’m not just smart and good two shoes
They think I’m good; they call me “hun”
A pretty smile, no bubbly snooze
 
I have to be all glad and good
So others worry naught for me
If I will stay as others would
I’ll stay as others let me be
 
There’s more to me than just a smile
And more than just a friendly wave
Yes, I am human, all the while
Yet I do try to just “behave”
 
I want to be someone that’s new
I need to find just who I am
To learn when “I myself” is true
I must find me within this jam
 
For I am not a perfect box
And I am more than what I seem
So even if I’m tossed on rocks
I will fulfill my deeper dream
