How can I cease to be
The person that is me
For when I look in the mirror,what do I see?
I see a girl that society is breaking,
I see a girl that society is making.
A girl that yearns to stand tall,
But is constantly dragged down to fall.
Why does society expect me to be like them?
And when I don't try hard enough, I am condemned.
Will I choose to be happy?
Or will I choose to fit in
The cycle continues, but does it ever end?
How can I be the person that is truly me,
When society says that's not good enough to be?
But do I stand tall?
Why yes, yes I do,
For the myth of conformity is not really true.
I will not change myself to be more of you and less of me,
Becaus me being me is what's meant to be.
