I'm lost in a world that wants to bring me down
A world full of people willing to let you drown
In the hurt and despair when the truth sinks in
That you'll just never be quite good enough for Them.
It's hard to push on when all you hear
Are negative remarks falling upon not-so-deaf ears
I wish I could just slip away on occasion
Alone, by myself, an internal liaison
With just me and I to try and cope with it all
Lest I lose myself again in the Fall.
But unlike some, when I Fall, I Rise again
And I take up arms against Them, a pen.
Just a white pen and an old notebook
And me settled down in my own little nook
To tell Them all what I've learned from this-
By embracing my flaws, I become Flawless.
Each and every one of us is perfectly flawed
And we live in a world that will soon be awed
By all of us here, truly a sight to behold
We are stronger than diamonds, more valuable than gold,
And we will never again let Them convince us otherwise-
Who cares what They think? We're Flawless in our eyes.
Really, I should thank Them for all that they've done.
Because of Them, I found myself, so I'd say I've won
This ongoing war between Them and me and I.
I'll never lose myself again in someone else's lies.
