Just Wanna Be Me

Verse 1:

No matter where I go.
I am judged.
When I'm on the street.
When I'm in the store.
Can't take this s*** anymore.
And I…

(Chorus)

Just Wanna Be Me.
Not apart of this f***ed up society.
People don't live in reality.
And it drives me crazy.
They judge me because of my hair.
They judge me cus I don't drink.
Judge me cus I don't do drugs, judge me cus I think.
When you aren't like everyone else.
Don't expect to be accepted.
When you live in a world where…
Everyone is so neglected.
If you're different, you're rejected.
And I…
Just Wanna Be Me.

(End of 1st Chorus)

Verse 2:

No frat boy I don't wanna be.
Apart of this delusion see?
Cus I ain't like you, ya judge me.
Cus I respect women, you treat me differently.
But maybe if we just talked and were civilized.
You wouldn't hide behind this false disguise.
This will be your demise, this will be your demise!
And I…

(Chorus)

Just Wanna Be Me.
Not apart of this f***ed up society.
People don't live in reality.
And it drives me crazy.
They judge me because of my hair.
They judge me cus I don't drink.
Judge me cus I don't do drugs, judge me cus I think.
When you aren't like everyone else.
Don't expect to be accepted.
When you live in a world where…
Everyone is so neglected.
If you're different, you're rejected.
And I…
Just Wanna Be Me.

(End of Last Chorus)

Last Verse:

Tired of all this propaganda.
Superficial Extravaganza.
Girls and Boys are becoming the same.
Follow the same rules, follow the same game.
But no! I ain't gonna play that game.
Cus I wanna be me, and they think its a shame.
To be so authentic.
To them, its an offense.
And they attack me whenever I use Defense.
Cus when you don't think like the rest of society.
They think you're f***ing crazy.
We aren't taught to think outside of this box.
We're taught to be stereotypes.
And I don't wanna be that.
I just.

Wanna Be Me…

I like how your very honest in your poem or song. Sorry. It's beautiful, honest/raw, and very, very true. People should just want to be themselves. A poem that I wrote was rather similar to this, your song. I love it. Thank you for sharing this!
