There are people out there who get their kicks
by using words as sticks.
They will put you down
and drag your soul through the ground.
They do this because of ignorance
and jealousy of your brilliance.
All through life
you must stand up to this strife.
Doesn’t matter that you are different
just remember to make yourself a commitment.
I won’t let them condemn
because I don’t listen to them.
I am me
and in this knowledge I will remain free to be!
