I Am Not

I am not emo
I am not goth
I am not scene

I will not be labeled by you.
I will not be judged by you.
I will not be defined by my clothes, music, or hair.
I will not be named by you.

My only name is the one my mother gave.
You cannot call me fat, ugly, or stupid.
You cannot laugh at me.
I am not yours to be mocked, scoffed, or broken.
I will defy your rules and break your stones.
I will burn your sticks.

Because who I am is up to me.

I am not emo
I am not goth
I am not scene

I am me.
