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…
