Society’s heart beats to a bass line in a sellout song.

Who are you to tell me what is right and what is wrong?

I’ve always lived without a compass and tried to follow the wildest winds,

And I’ve tried hard to patiently wait to see what’s around the bend,

But the battle is real and I ain’t gonna lie,

A large part of me conformed before I was able to open my eyes,

And pick up a pen and make sense of the creature within,

To unbecome and be a man that to me makes sense…

Not what you say I should, but who I choose to be,

Unbound by the chains of their terms and ultimately free.

I was always afraid of pain and now I choose to bleed,

Because an honest poet bleeds the deepest darkest shades of honesty,

And could anything other than that really be important,

I believe no, and now I wage war to be able to show that.

So judge me as you will, deny me my moment,

It won’t slow me down, it will only make me more potent…
