You can't hear me
You can't see me
You can't feel me
You have given birth to me
But you ignore me
I am alive!
Not your dearly departed
And yet still to you I am a failure, forever imperfect
You have enriched my mind
With the thoughts that I'm not worth it
I spent my life fighting for you
When I gave up, you shrugged and said "OOPS"
I lived but I died inside
Unable to find what I can do with my time.
I am lost, I am scared.
All I knew was I will certainly fail.
But wait! A new thought?
What if instead of you, I thought of myself?
This is my turning point, my redemption arc
Today, I dig myself out of this hole
I claw from the darkness to the light
I am warrior and I fight for myself
I have been to hell and back in my mind
I have made it through
I am a bird who flies free in the sky
I am reborn from the tears I have cried
I am finding my path in life
And although you still can't see my success
You tough me how to stand alone
I believe in me for me
I need no one’s approval
I will stand tall, head held high
I am a warrior now.
I will fight for what's mine.
