This I that I am
ask to be
ask to live.
This I that I am
won't apologize
for being.

Old paths
and ways of being
left behind
a trail
of tears.
"No more", I say
"no more..."

The right, the grace,
the will to be
is mine.
This grace not from peers
but from a higher,
and deeper place

The right to be
no one but me,
the right to feel
my own soul

This I decide,
I choose
and don't ask others
to let me be.
