Like a shadow in the sun,
I conformed to what others told me I should be.
Following the social norm,
I was content with fitting in.
I could be easily swayed one way or the other;
Agreed with what the majority thought.
But that was before.
I am now a centered, immovable tree,
That is not easily swayed.
I am no longer the production of society.
I think my own thoughts,
And take my own actions.
I do what I believe is right,
And am not concerned with what others think.
I strive to be better and better everyday,
And don't settle for "average".
I am going to change this world,
By being myself.
For the grace of the Lord.
I fly amongst the clouds now.
And there is no shadow to be seen.
