Many many many :)

Picking up a pen and putting down
the sword
Causes more harm than ever before
Letting out the feelings society told me
were wrong
Stepping up from the shadows, with the message I am strong
You pointed out my flaws as if I couldn't
already see them
Turning myself into my worst enemy
But now I'm facing those stares and
whispers that used to cripple me
From these bonds of hatred I can and
will break free
No one can stop me now, I am no slave to man and their thoughts of right and wrong
Who are you to say I don't belong?
The definition of beauty is nonexistent
A sense of belonging seems so distant
They put strict limitations on who we are
expected to be
If you dare to be different, you'll be
criticized, I guarantee
They will make you feel small, worthless, and insignificant
But in reality you are simply magnificent
Being yourself shouldn't come with a cost
to pay
People talk about change that fails to
happen every day
Nobody can ever know the torture of hate
Or the emotional scars it creates
