You've been heard before
You were known as being colorful and vibrant
What changed?
Now you're dull and quiet

You never required the help of a microphone
But assistance is now offered
Take it.

Find the microphone that got dug deep inside
Plug it in, press on and let it sing
Others cannot live your life for you
Live it. Love it. Loath it.
Speak through your microphone
Make yourself be heard again

Begin the parades
You've been released from the tight grip
Scream, shout, snicker, smile like the sun
Your life's waiting for you to unfold
It's time to press off on your microphone
You are ready now, to continue on your own

I can connect to this...I changed schools, and am still trying to plug in my inner microphone. Unfortunately, I have been bullied a lot and this makes it harder to be myself, but I try to be myself at times. Good job!
