I've come so far

Flashback
 
A blast from my past
 
10 years old and growing fast
 
 
 
A sweet little girl
 
Innocent and pure
 
Soft spoken and even demure
 
 
 
Spring forward
 
5 years ahead
 
15 years old and lying in bed
 
 
 
Stare at the ceiling
 
Feeling uneasy
 
Got thoughts making me feel queasy
 
 
 
Mommy I fell in love with a girl
 
She’s my best friend
 
And we’ll be together till the very end
 
 
 
Everyone tells me
 
To fix myself up right
 
Be kind and obedient and not put up a fight
 
 
 
 
Lose my weight
 
Fall in love with a boy
 
Let everyone use me as their personal toy
 
 
 
 
Forward again
 
To just short of yesterday
 
The day that made me who I am today
 
 
 
Wake up
 
I suddenly realize
 
I am looking at the world with my own two eyes
 
 
 
I am my own person
 
Who shall feel no shame
 
I am no longer that innocent dame
 
 
 
I won’t be your baby anymore
 
Your precious little girl
 
I’ve got ideas that’ll make your head whirl
 
 
 
I’m in love with myself
 
Every bit of me
 
I am who I wanted to be
 
 
 
My gender is inexistent 
 
People trying to change me
 
And damn, they're persistent
 
 
 
Whom do you love, my dear?
 
My sexuality is all
 
Every boy and girl and genderqueer
 
 
 
THIS IS WHO I AM
 
I AM FLAWLESS
 
I am independent
 
Beautiful
 
Free
 
I am who I want to be
 
Any fears and doubts I'll surely slay
Because I wouldn't have it any other way
