People look at me

What do they see?

Just a girl trying to look pretty

Making the guys look and see just a pretty face

No, I am independent

Miss Independent


Loving and caring person inside me

Helping others when in need

But others don’t see that in me

that’s where they are wrong

I’m strong

Yes, I am independent

Miss Independent


Even at times my OWN friends

Tell me,

You are really as stupid as you look

Seeing them laugh at me

When all I try to do is learn

Waiting for that question to be answered

Makes me believe

Yes, I am independent

Miss Independent


They don’t see the other side of me

A bright intelligent me

I try my best to succeed there for I will achieve
yes I do slack off and cause trouble

Yet I ask myself

Is this the real me?

No, I am independent

Miss Independent


So now you see who I’ve become to be

You might not see it until you meet the real me

Who said you can’t have beauty and brains

I say you can have both

I don’t use negativity to bring me down

I use strength to cover it out

Locked out from my fears

Waiting for the right moment to say

Yes, I am independent
