Who I Am (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 4

Tell me when to go
So that way I'll know, if I should move or not
That is what you want
Isn't it?
To control me?
Make me feel smaller?

Well, I'm not one to mirror conformity
I've always believed it to be more of a lonely city
Rather than a community
Because it's built upon safe lies
I'd rather be a hated outcast
It's been suiting me just fine my whole life

Deep down I've always been a free spirit
Even though they've always ridiculed me for it
There's just some abuse you get used to
I'm a woman...oops!
I also have colored skin...sorry!
Someone should've told me to stay in my place

Oh, right, they did....

I'm too liberated to be held down
I'd rather be wrecked than safe and sound
Spit at me, curse my name
It won't make a difference anyway
Because I can't help but be the same
It's who I am...

I've been reawakened
And no I'm not mistaken
This is my revolution
Or maybe my revelation
Either way I'm taking the risk and being set free
I can't help it, it's who I am...

  1. I like the spirit here! It's like a declaration to the world! Have at me! You may be a bit braver than I. :-)

  2. Thanks! I just feel like there comes a time when everyone gets tired of being hounded & prejudged for who they are. Bravery comes when we're tired of being tired. :-)
