For years I was afraid to want, so I never asked for anything,
All the times I was afraid to dream, so I didn’t let myself sleep peacefully,
I was told I was dumb and ugly, I stopped letting anyone see me,
And when they started calling a me a failure, I withdrew my ambitions,
Every step I took, every decision I made, I did it so they wouldn’t have to bear my burden, only to realize I was the one carrying theirs, so I decided to drop them….
You see it wasn’t you, it was me who let you treat me like I needed your validation, from the very moment I gave you the power to tell me who I am, but today I take it back….
I will grow, I will beautify, I will dream,
I will want and if you try to silence me, I would scream….
I am today who you will want to be tomorrow,
Do not doubt my ability to walk away from your shadow….
I will grow, I will laugh, I will fly,
if my growth scares you, feel free to say your goodbyes,
I will not allow you the right to even stand beside me, I will no longer give this failing relationship another try,
I will act on my wishes, give two ducks to your tradition,
Be careful of messing with me hereon, this is Not a Dream, this is my Ambition!
