You tell me how you think I am.
You tell me that you know me.
You tell me that I'm young and naive.
But now it is time for you to see.
I have these scars here on my arms and legs.
Yes, they are on my legs too.
That you did not know.
I place a smile upon my face each day.
My tears are secretly wiped away.
The pity which you claim I like,
Is the one thing that I hate.
The whore you perceive me to be,
Is the one thing that I will never be.
I am going to start living my life without abandon.
I am tired of stepping on eggshells around you.
I am tired of keeping up my guard.
No matter what I say or do,
You will continue to judge me.
I am simply going to live my life,
I am just going to be me.
My life is my life,
It is time for me to live it.

Life is bitter, but it is also sweet. But the sane two flavors can get boring. Why not create our own flavors? A little bit of spice here and there couldn't hurt...could it?
