What it's like being a teenager.


I am who I’m meant to be.

I am

I am

I am

Who am I really

That is the question

Not the thing causing your indigestion

That’s your drunken heart

I am not you

I will never be you because I am me and you will never be me

Or change me

Or manipulate me

Or Drag Me Down

Did “me” just use a One Direction reference

I think she did

But that’s her

She’s her own self

She’s independent

And strong

And don’t need no man

But enough about her

What about me.

Screaming from these voice

Trying to stand out

Being what I want to be

Living through this drought

Of creativeness

But I am who I am

And I want someone to love me for Who I am

No Nick Jonas pun intended.
