Change my world


I want to go away,
but where could I stay?
Could I go,
where nobody would know?

I want to scream,
but I want to dream.
Even if I took the blame,
it would still be the same.

I don't want to hear another lie.
Funny how everybody acts so sly.
I want to change the world,
but I'm only one girl.

So I'll start with mine.
No more hate; no more crime,
against my heart.
I won't be torn apart.

I'm going to walk far,
and raise my own bar.
I'm going to be smart,
and finally start,

living,
believing,
that things will get better,
rather than stay bitter.

I wont choose sides,
and I wont hide.
I wont stoop low,
and I wont follow.

I will learn to smile,
and make my time worth while.
I wont just prove,
but I will move,

a crowd,
and make myself proud.
I need to be selfish.
I am no longer foolish.

I will raise my voice,
I have a choice.
I will not be rolled over,
or put in a corner.

Because now I can see,
I want to be me.
