I used to be afraid,
Afraid that everyone could hear what I was thinking,
All my darkest secrets to be put on display,
Every heartbeat echoing the pain,
Every heart break for all to see,
And to me there was nothing,
And I was emptied to transparency.
But now I must be braver than brave,
And when I speak everyone will know the volume of what I say,
And only those close to me with see the beauty I hold deep inside,
And I shall brush the tears away and no longer in fear shall I hide,
And when my song is sung,
It will be as brilliant as lightning and as powerful as thunder.
There is nothing for I must apologize,
For if you only come to see my laughter,
You do not deserve to know why I cry,
I may be as mad as a hatter,
I may one day forget the next line,
You’ll never know what exactly I am after.
I didn’t ask for this madness,
I ask only for understanding,
I didn’t come here to rhyme,
I came to evolve into something more than the nothing I felt,
I didn’t come to take haven on this hill,
I will not beg for heaven if you will only give me hell,
I serve no lords and no master,
I am born free.
