I don't need your approval for my actions
I don't care for your judgment on my transitions
Even if I'm doing wrong I don't need your permission
You would understand but you won't listen
I didn't take the challenge, this is true
But it's not from apathy nor an excuse
I will not pay anything that is not due
No status nor threat will I listen to.
Unfriend me if you want, hate me if you please
Scold me and scream then call it a tease.
To my heart, money and ice and buckets have no keys
I'll put my heart where God puts the needs.
You tell me it's for a wonderful cause
I believe you without pause
But it's still my choice regardless of applause
For it takes more than ice for ice to thaw.
Many have ignored but I took a stand
If you're going to challenge me, do it man to man
I said no and I got the back of a hand
But on my own two feet I still stand.
I don't need your approval or permission
I don't want your judgment on my actions
If it makes me an outcast and an exception
So be it, but you'd understand if you'd listen.
