For once
Im going to seek
What lies within my soul
And if i reveal
More darkness than light
Sometimes you battle a loosing fight

For once
Im going to unchain
labels society attatched to my name
And if i find
I am too vain
Somehow the pain remains the same

For once
Im questioning this life
The things i do not have
And if i find
I have much strive
Why is Life so unkind?

For once
Im focusing on me
All my desires and own needs
And if i find
They are not met
Why pretend im so happy?

For once
I'll admit im drained
That death would bring release
And if i find
My sins i attain
Well nothing ventured nothing gained

For i am who i am
I cannot be
What is expected
unfairly
Of me
And me
Forever
I will be
It doesnt bring
acceptance nor my validate from society
And if what i am
Is lack
and clearly not enough
Of what i need to be
Atleast ive learned
To live my life
For only but just me
