"You're Not Alive Unless You're Living"

I’m sorry I don’t have a 4.0 GPA, I’m happy with my 3.5
I’m sorry my life isn’t perfect, I’m just glad to be alive
I’m sorry I’m not drop dead gorgeous from my head to my toes
But I’m not in the acting industry, therefore I don’t put on shows

I’m sorry I don’t come from a wealthy family, not everything is just placed in my hand
I’m sorry I have a unique personality not many people understand
I’m sorry everyone thinks I’m supposed to do what they say
What they fail to realize is that God is the only person that I truly obey

I’m sorry I can’t always run to mommy and daddy to make everything ok
All I have is my pride and faith to help me along the way
I’m sorry I may say things to people that may seem incoherent
I’m sorry that everyone seems to think that they’re my parents

I’m sorry that I’m the type of person that can easily speak their mind
And a person like me is truly hard to find
I’m sorry that not many people like me and think I’m stuck up
But unless you’ve taken the time to get to know me, then please shut up

I’m sorry that some people refuse to accept what my future plans are to be
But now I refuse to keep apologizing for simply being me
I’m done pouring my heart out, I am now wiping my tears
I’m done being sorry because I’ve been sorry for seventeen years
