Why do you think you have a say
In the different ways I wish to go about my day?
Who told you you had a say
In what I should and shouldn't keep at bay?
Tell me why you feel you know more
About the essence dwelling in my core
About certain things uncalled for
About how you just might be the fit mentor
Fuck society, I am my own entity
Trying to understand the entirety of my identity
But you weigh me down with the intensity of your hostility
All I ask for is to enjoy the extremity of my serenity
You cast me away 'cause you judge based on our little disparities
Instead of bonding and sharing on the basis of our surfeit similarities
You neglect the fact that acceptance is a necessity for humanity
Henceforth, I won't give an iota of f**k about your approval, in all sincerity
I don't need your validation
I don't want your recommendation
I don't have to change, I don't want any modification
I don't care about the findings of your observation
You bring your inhumane clauses and laws
I'm just living my life but all of a sudden you pause
Stare at me with all your problems as if I were the cause
I don't care anymore for I am a rebel with a cause
