Being punished for who you are

Is the cruelest thing to do by far

And though worse yet

Is to hurt yourself

Because you know of nothing else

All your life you believed you were wrong

Because deep down you sing your own song

And everyone one tried to put you down

Deep in the earth, rich and brown

One day you wake from your slumber

And look at a star to release your cumber

For only you know your worth

A life born of earth

So to every girl with a tale deep within

Who wants so much more than what they’ve been given

You do not have to fight the whole way up

To take that golden cup

Take a pause once in a while

With caution and a careful smile

Take a stand and make your case

And always know you have your place
