Society's Demands

December 6, 2007
By
Strength.
Beauty.
American Smiles.

These are the things our society demands of us.
They want us to be strong but push us down.
They want us to be beautiful, but only hurt us.
They want us to pretend to be happy.
Even when we just want to cry.
They want us to stay low.
And let them walk over you.

But I don't feel like doing that right now!
I want to be me.
I want to be strong as a hero,
And never let you down!
I want to be beautiful as I want,
And screw your opinion.
I want to smile when I want,
And cry on rainy days.
I want to soar high as the heavens,
And never float back down.
I don't want a mask.
I don't want a disguise,
I want to be who I want to be...
Who I am inside.

Yeah.
Who I am inside...
You don't know my name.
You don't know my game.
You don't know who I am.
You don't know that I can.
You don't know any thing about me,
Cause I won't let you in.

I don't want to hide myself.
I don't want to be a fake.
I want to be me,
And that's who I am today.
There are secerts that reside,
Inside this heart i hide.
Things you will never know.
Because you don't know me.

Who I am inside...
You don't know my name,
don't know my game.
You don't know who I am.
You don't know that I can.
You don't know anything about me,
Cause i won't let you in.

You don't deserve to see me.
Because you hurt me.
Some time,
Some day,
You tore this heart in two.
My relatives don't see past my face,
My attitude,
My shield.
They can't see that I'm not who i seem,
Them who should know me the best.
My parents don't understand,
That i'm dying to be me.
Dying to be free.

You don't know my name,
You don't know my game.
You don't know who I am.
You don't know I can.
You don't know anything about me,
Cause I won't let you in.

Not that you can't force your way in...
My fortress can be breached.
But I will hate you for it,
And never surrender.
I will forever be scarred.
Forever afraid.
I will never mend this rift...
This rift between us.

Who I am inside...
You don't know who I am.
Or what I am.
You don't know what I can Do,
Or even my name.
You know nothing.
Because I won't let you in.

Why do you insist?
You hurt me far more that not.
You've bruised my already broken heart,
So fragile,
So alone.
I will be strong.
But not forever.
I can't.
Someday i will crack.
And the flood will pour our.
I will need a friend,
So wait.
Wait for me to trust.

Because strength and beauty,
Honesty and trust.
Those are the tings i do best.
In this messy world,
Full of terror and strife.
I will be strong,
I will be strong.
Because I know in this life,
I will be torn in two,
And my two will be more than I can spare.
But in this life,
I have friends to get me through.
To grab my hand and pull me back.
And help me on my way.
Because, who I am inside is me
Who I am in me....
