Don't Listen

Location

A world where everyone wants to speak and not hear
 
Is a world where a smile can fade into a tear
 
Born into stress and a father that felt hate 
 
Never was this child supposed to be great
 
He told me when I walked that I could not sprint
 
But my legs moved faster and I tried to imprint
 
That if I was told I could never succeed 
 
I would work till my lungs could no longer breathe
 
In school they said I was always too loud
 
They said I was blinded and  was just too proud
 
But now as 17 years is the time
 
They ask me to talk and discuss how I shine
 
They said my past would cease me to grow
 
But as I sprouted and flourished I continued to show
 
That no matter what is said I will always do me
 
Because I travel through my eyes and not what they see
 
My world is a world where I can decide 
 
Whether to go fight or decide to go hide
 
My decision will always be to prove those wrong
 
Those who believed that I did not belong
 
A world where everyone wants to speak and not hear
 
Will be a world where I smile broadly without a tear
