How many times?

Oh, how many times?

Will I let my persona be defined

by outer forces

Trying to shape and mold me

Scolding me because of my differences

in style and opinion

How many times?

Oh, how many times?

Will I bow down to kings and queens

of self centered kingdoms

Attempting to make me a peasant in

their self centered world

Can’t live a life that’s not mine

The life I live has been defined

Webster’s dictionary doesn’t have a clue

When it comes to being me, the world is 

completely in the dark

Someday, someone will flick the right switch

And behold the beautiful bright light

that defines my being
