Can’t Break Me Down

You can try to break me down
Shatter me to pieces
But you won't be able to

You can try
Even crying in my ear
That I’m not worth anything
But I won’t listen

You can try chaining me
Locking me down
But I won’t let you

Do you think I will pay attention to your hurtful words?
Or that I will break down in tears?
Or that I would slouch down, over and over because you tell me?
Well guess what?
I won’t
I will be free
I will have my rights
I will have my say
I will be equal
I will be me
I will be no one else but me
