My Greatest Sin (Makes Me Great)

I've been treated worse than dirt for one reason alone,
Because my greatest sin,
Was living my life my way,

I've taken punches and had my hair pulled,
Because my greatest sin,
Was speaking my mind,

I've been persecuted for the clothes I wear,
Because my greatest sin,
Was dressing for the weather,

I deal with cat calls and leering perverts,
Because my greatest sin,
Was flattering my body,

I've been called a tease when I'm a victim,
Because my greatest sin,
Was being forced when I said no,

I've felt all these things and more,
Because my greatest sin,
Was being born a woman.

Wait, that's wrong. The truth is...
My greatest sin,
Was believing the lies society told me.
