You Can't Define Me

My skin does not define me
My race does not define me
You can not define me
I am who I am you can not
Change that I am the only one
That can define me I am my own person
At times you can't tell I don't want to be a Barbie doll I am not fake I don't want to be like them but slowly I am turning into them trying to be perfect the perfect girl slowly losing who I am I don't want to be defined by the way I look you can not define me the number on the scale can not define me I am not my weight it should not define me the way I dress should not define me I wear what I like but that does not define the person I am on the inside I am my own person you can not change that I love who I was not the person that I have become at times I can't see the person that I use to be I wanted to be someone who was better than them sometimes life becomes hard and I can't stand it the music I listen to does not define me I love all types of music just because I listen to sad music does not make me emo I do not like that propel out labels on others it's not fair that we have to deal with this depression it is a hell hole that we live in I should not be defined by my scars you can not define me I am my own person I'm sorry but you can not change that I don't care who you are you can not define who I am I don't care what you think I am who I am deal with it I've done a lot of things that should not define me but it does my heart and soul should define me my past can not define me you can not define me
