I am wrong.
am I wrong?
for wanting what I want
all my life I have been told
what was wrong or what was right
from only through someone else's eyes.
to be happy,
I would have to give you disappointment.
sacrifice your approval
just to live the way I feel was right.
Don't guilt me!
Don't shame me!
Don't make me feel small.
I want to live life without shame.
I don't care if I make mistakes.
I don't care if ill suffer from my choices.
But I shouldn't be told I'm wrong,
trying to do what was best for me.
