Above All Odds

I've been waiting for a while but I found out that this is my moment,
No more stalling because I have become my own opponent,
Bearing myself up striving to achieve perfection,
I have to give myself room to learn from my mistakes and accept correction,
That supports my success because I honestly have no problem with constructive criticism,
Just as long as it doesn't interfere with my character and individualism,
Yes I've been an independent girl for a while,
I generally find ways to show my own style,
I'm not about the hype and if you know what I'm all about I want to see you nod,
It's going to be a long road yet I'm not concerned because I can rise above the odds.
