That which makes me tick is hard to define
Is the antidepressants stabilizing my mind?
Is it the fear of failure or being left behind?
Is the incessant tick tock ticking of time?
Or is it the comforting rhythm of my heart and these rhymes?
Maybe my tick is a positive thing
A heart so full of love that I just wanna sing
Feeling so light I could just fly, take wing and go!
Racing forward to a life I have chosen
All doors are open
As long as I grab the handle
Can’t hold a candle
To how bright my future will be
To the brightness in me
And soon you will see
Like the sun I will be
Burning bright, wild, and free
So I guess what powers me
Is my solar energy
Soak it up like chloroplasts
Store it so that it lasts
Unleash it in blasts
To drown out the dark of the past
And break that ceiling of glass
At the top of the class
The best I’ll surpass
And be the greatest at last
Top of the world
A solar-powered girl
