i'm not you

October 12, 2008
By Samantha Yee, Redwood City, CA

you tell me i’m not good enough
you tell me i’m not perfect
you tell me that i’m grounded
you tell me that’s the verdict

you tell me i’m a rebel
you tell me that i’m wrong
you tell me that i’m crazy
you tell me i’m headstrong

you tell me that i’m foolish
you tell me i’m absurd
you tell me i’m not driven
you tell me i won’t get into harvard

you tell me what to say
you tell me what to do
you tell me what to think
when will you ever learn i’m not you
