It's Only Natural

Hiding in the shadows

Face down

Right under the radar, away from the shallows

I spent too much time with the shallow, now I’m not looking for a crown

Only acceptance

I’ve accepted me, now it’s time for me to accept the rest

To come out, to make my entrance

To not be afraid, to be unfiltered, to no longer make myself suppressed

Here is my closet door opening, here is me declaring

I will no longer filter myself, I’ll put it all out, no more hiding

I’m ready for acceptance, I’m ready for caring

I’m ready to ignore everyone who is uncaring, everyone who thinks we should be colliding

This is me

This is who I was born to be
