Don't put me in a box
I am not geeky, Goth, punk, skater, preppy, whatever,
I am in my own world and go at my own flow, and nothing can change that;
Because I am who I am.

Things aren't what they seem
You take a glance and I am a nerd,
You hear a phrase and I am heartless,
You see me for who I am and I knock you off your feet;
Because I am who I am.

Soon you'll see
I am not born with a hunger for rice
I am born with a hunger for experience;
Because I am who I am.

I say I am okay when people know I am not,
I dream and dream, but never do,
I try and try, yet still cannot do;
I hope for change,

Like a mosaic,
I am a million things in one;
Because I am who I am.

I am one person,
One dreamer,
And one girl who will make change
Because I am who I am

not everything is what it seems, don't judge a book by her cover
