Taking All Of My Energy


Some may say I'm a nerd
Some may say I'm a geek
Some may say I'm ugly
Some may say I'm a freak
But no matter what they say
and it never fails
They never say I'm me

Some may say I'm loud
Some may say I'm shy 
Some may say I'm ghetto
And to be honest 
I won't deny

They only call it
like they see it
I am shy, loud, ghetto 
a geek, a freak, a nerd
ugly and anything else
that is said

But only because 
I constantly live 
in the shadows of everyone else
I live my life trying to be 
you, you, you, and you
never before trying to be me

I live my life 
trying to please everyone
and honestly
It's taking all of my energy
