When I'm Older

When I'm older, I'll finally learn

To speak my mind but go unheard

To be unique and then be shammed

And come to terms its me to blame

 

When I'm older, I'll finally see

That clothes and makeup is all I'll be

My mind and skills can go to waste

Let every thought become erased

 

When I'm older, I'll finally know

To give it up and just let go

There is no way to escape the scene

The ground is the safest place to be

 

When I'm older, I'll finally learn

To speak my mind and then be heard

To be unique and not ashamed 

Because I'm alive and here today.
