To Be Me Is To Be Beautiful And Proud

My freedom
Limited.
My voice
Unheard
But I hear your beautiful words!
Stop lying.
You've heard nothing of my mind
Where I'm beautiful and proud
To have brown eyes.
Beautiful and proud
to love everything.

My love
Endless.
My tears
ever flowing.
But I have done thing to you, my sweet!
Yes, you have.
You shoved words down my throat
And made me into yours.
But I'm beautiful and proud
To say no to you.
Beautiful and proud
To yell my true name.

My hair
Long
My voice
Loud.
Stop! You are wrong for doing this!
No, I'm not.
I'm right for doing everything.
Beautiful and proud
To have walked away from you.
Beautiful and proud
To sing with the wind.

My eyes
Bright.
My lips
A smile.
No! You can't! You can't be you!
Oh, yes the hell I can.
Because I am
Beautiful and proud
To stand here far from you
And run wild
And be me.
