Being Myself


I just wish that I could be myself, you know? 

I wish that I could just find my way and go-- 

Beyond the limits, life to the full,  not staid and old

To be what I am rather than what I'm told



I want to live rather than just exist, 

And when you tell me I can't, I get pissed. 

I want to be me my own man,  

To live equal , not banned  

From life.
