Because I Choose To Be


The media tells me I gotta be a man,

Well I say I do what I can.

Society wants to tear me down,

But look at me, I ain't wearin' a frown!

Roll with the punches,

Go with the flow,

Don't sit at lunches,

Got life to grow.

It's time to shine,

I want to be free,

My world is divine.

No matter what they say,

The naysayers can't hurt me.

I am a man,

Because I choose to be.
