I was lost out in the chaos of today

With my head down, unsure what to say

I felt the judgement eating down on me

I had no choice in who I would turn out to be

 

Then, like a spotlight on the night

You came, and showed me to fight

Even though you didn't know as much

Before I felt like my true self was just a crutch 

 

But with your words...you don't understand what you do to me

You help me open my eyes to gaze at the light, you've helped me finally see

You've taught me to become who I am on the inside, where before I felt like no one

And at least now, I know that I have you, and I don't really care what they think of me, or if they mock, imitate, or shun

So, maybe, you can realize now what you've done and how you've helped me along

Before...I guess I felt like a mistake, like I was just plain wrong 

But that was everyone else speaking for me

And now, because of you, I've been set free
