I need to make them see.
I need to make them all see.
That I am no fool.

I do not fall for small bribes or cheap words
I know what I deserve
And I demand that I get it.
I'll accept nothing less.

I refuse to become your plaything
For your simplistic, materialistic needs.
I am much more than I appear to be.
Shy? Maybe.
A push-over? Never
I stand up for what I believe in, because if I don't, nobody else will.

Because I'm not some quarter-pony ride.
I am hopeful.
I am strong-willed.
I am capable.
Whether you choose to believe in me or not.
