I am who I want to be – A teacher, a writer A technician, an electrician It’s to bad that you’re too blind to see. In a world where the individual exists Only in the mind And people are judged based on the facts presented Make a world we should have left behind. We’re based off sex, race, and age And it’s the last one that triggers rage Judgments aren’t singular – we aren’t viewed as ourselves, just Living representations Of disappointments And degradations The newest generation Is given expectations That we’re to fulfill despite our obligations But we’re too busy; There’s only twenty-four hours in a day Pushing our minds any harder Will make them start to fall away Who am I? How should I know?Between misconceptions from the media Falsehood from the family And lies from life There is no other place to go But the confines society restricts us to. Where our immaturity Is a liability When it should be A blessing And naïveté and innocence Are looked upon As ignorance. Not something worth protecting I don’t see me in the mirror But the generation of us The selfish, heartless, absorbed teenagers In a world where we Are given categories and labels There are no individuality No families, just casualties So it’s not: Who am I? It’s: Who are we? If everyone would just SEE We’re people We’re believers We’re hopers We’re dreamers So who are we? We’re whoever we want to be.
