Can I just be me?

Location

If I talk like this,

Can I walk like that?

Would it be okay?

How would I be perceived?

Or can you be deceived?

 

Stereotypes surround me.

I think I have found me

But the world has put limits on me

Oreo girl or Ghetto girl

Those are my choices

 

Am I just a label?

Of course! According to cable.

Why can’t I be me?

Am I not good enough?

I hate all this stuff!

 

Is there a solution?

I sure hope so.

Hope is all we can have.

Changing the thought of another,

Is always hard to cover
