THIS IS WHY


This is why
This is why I am this way
You look at me and say
What a shame look how he has sank
It hurts this is why I cry
I remember you well scoffing at my pain
This is why
I will stamp on my past
Step on my edge
Lift up my wings and fly away
I can be
Whatever I want to be
This is why
I will be me
And Live to my fullest potentiality.
