I Am Not...

You Are a Special

In honor of International Girl’s Day coming up, I wanted to make this poem/song to encourage girls everywhere to be true to themselves and not try to conform to what society tells them to be. I hope you enjoy !

***

I am not your fears

I am not your hate

You think you can break me

What a big mistake

I stand tall like a mountain 

I been through rough seas 

So know,

I won’t be formed by your insecurities 

You say I’m fake 

Not good enough

Not strong enough 

But when will I ever be enough 

If I listened to you, I’d be an empty soul 

So what ima do, is get my confidence on my own 

Riding the waves of peoples insecurities 

Riding the waves of your lies

I’ll never be good enough for you 

So I’m going to quit trying

To fit into your narrow mind 

I’m happy with being me

Cuz I’m so done with your insecurities
