To Be Myself

Location

They tell me to be myself.

They tell me to act that way,

this way, but not my way.

Do want to put my life up on a self?

Stand back and not say a word?

Shut my mouth like a caged bird?

They tell my to be myself...

 

I tell me to be myself.

I will act as I please, say as I please,

think as I please.

I will rise from the ground,

become the free bird in the sky.

No one to hold me down.

I tell me to be myelf.
