What I Love

For so long I fell into step Like a soldier Marching to a drum

Desperate for acceptance I chased my warped idea Of “belonging” Twisting and changing Caring so much about what everyone else wanted But what about me?

I want to paint my nails to wear a skirt and soft sweater I want to stare up at the sky and daydream about magic

I care what you want But I can't force you to accept me Instead I'll do what I love Because in the end I love ME
