Definition of Who I am Suppose to be
I don’t know if everyone wonders what was what before it was something
But I speak for myself when I say that I always wonder how something would be if it doesn’t exist
But who am I to say what I feel when I’m just a child who is surrounded by adults
Who am I to judge people who judge me?
Who am I to do what I want or what I feel?
Who am I to know what is best for me?
Who am I to know anything?
It’s like when you try to talk, but an adult interrupts and there is nothing you can do about it because they’ll get upset, you’ll get upset, and then depressed, then angry all over again.
That’s what it means
Just sit, quiet, not a word, not a sound, not even a thought cause they’ll hear
Definitely no privacy
That’s the meaning
That is what its all about
That’s how it goes
That’s what they want
That’s what I’m taking everyday from adults
That’s how I am
That’s the definition of who I am supposed to be!
