You ask me to change myself, constantly
You instruct me to turn into someone I'll never be
People can't accept me for my true self, actually
You thought I'd be sorry for being myself, really?
In this huge world, there is so much fake beauty
But I have understood that I should be the real me
And when I accomplish all my goals successfully,
Will you change your mind suddenly,
Or will you accept me, and let me be free?

It's weird how I felt the need to prove myself all along
When I could've just been myself and stood strong
I didn't have to explain anyone that I'm not wrong
I should've been unapologetic, because that's where I belong.
