Break Free

Location

Running through the halls of distress 

Mirrors all around me 

Smotheredsuffocatedalone 

Look like this, act like that 

Too white to be black, and too black to be white 

Who am I 

Tvmagazines say I’m too short to model 

The world says I’m irresponsible because I’m a young mother 

Who am I 

What am I 

Steady questioning myself 

It’s not ok to be different 

But why not be different 

No don’t ask that question it’s not ok to ask that question 

Because they answer it 

NO!!! 

Break free running 

Smash the mirrors look into thy self 

NO!!! 

Be someone else, but who 

Judging mindtricks telling me I’m not right 

A mom a dad innocent little child 

WHO HAS A CHIILD 

Not acceptable 

Too smart to fail but who wants you to succeed? 

All the while I have to be strong 

Don’t cry (you show weakness) 

Don’t laugh (you get wrinkles) 

They say you won’t be able to do it 

A kid a job go to school 

A young love that won’t work 

Maybe their eyes are naïve 

Maybe I’m naïve  

To think I can be something different than my parents 

To think I can conceive and succeed  

Impossible  

NO!! 

Not for me, break free 

Be thy self 

Love thy self 

Endure the challenge 

BREAK FREE 

Never too young to love 

Never too young to hope 

Never too young to see potential 

Who am I  

Not them 

I am me 

BREAK the tv 

RIP the magazines 

FORGET the world 

Be strong, cry, smile, laugh HAHA!! 

Eat ice cream, eat pizza YUMM!! 

 BREAK FREE BREAK THE RULES
