Just Stop

Location

You say I should be me but you try to change me

I try to change for you but I am just going to be me

I am not ever going to be you so just stop it, stop it

I hate being the person you want me to be.

 

You say I should be me but you try to change me

I try to change for you but I am just going to be me

She is not who I am or ever will be so just stop it, stop it

The girl you want to see me be is not who I like

 

That person can never defend herself as well as I can

She is someone everyone else hates and doesn’t want

The girl you want will be an insecure bossy cheerleader

That I hate with a dying burning fiery passion in my heart

 

Why should I ever consider to be her ever again?

What good has she done for me in horrible situations?

The old me is now gone and is taken over by the new me

The new me is the improved and better me and everyone loves her

 

What was wrong with me back in elementary school?

Oh I was way too sensitive and I don’t want to be that

I will never be that girl ever again since I have grown up

I am stronger now than I have ever been in my life

Junior High I acted tougher than I really was

I became super immature and childish that

Now that I am older I regret it but would never

Change it since I have learned from that mistake

 

I went from being an innocent child to nasty minded

What I said was not appropriate to say and I

Would start cussing every other word thinking

It would make me the coolest kid in school

 

I could not figure out who were and were not

My friends let alone who just wanted to hang out

With me because they thought I was cool or

Just wanted something from me when they need it

 

You say I should be me but you try to change me

I try to change for you but I am just going to be me

I am not ever going to be you so just stop it, stop it

High School came and I went towards the better direction

I started to cuss less and less every year till now

I am still immature but not as much as I use to be

I am no longer just pretending I am tough but really weak

 

I am now tougher emotionally mentally and physically

I know most of my real friends by now and those who

Just want something from me and I separate them and

choose to hangout with my real friends who have my back

 

If you do not hear me call you family you are  

No more than a friend or you are my boyfriend

You may be using me and that is when I treat you

As just an ordinary person with no special meaning

 

You say I should be me but you try to change me

I try to change for you but I am just going to be me

I am not ever going to be you so just stop it, stop it

I hate being the person you want me to be.
