I could never be free in this world

Because they won't let me be

They have made their own laws that are supposed to govern me

Why should I unfollow them, I won't be in the race to live

These laws are tough , they are rigid like a manacle

There is not any happiness it could give

I could never be free in this world

Because they won't let me be


They are bound by the stereotypes of their thoughts

Definitions I am supposed to adjust myself with

Failing so I would lose myself the right to express

Why should I speak different than what they tell

There is not much peace it could give

I could never be free in this world

Because they won't let me be


They don’t think about how I feel

But they are very sensitive, I must know that

Forgetting which I would be reminded that I am a girl

Why should I not remember that, I have to survive

There is not much regality it could give

I could never be free in this world

Because they won't let me be


But the day I breathe my last

I would be filled with courage and strength

Then I shall fly like a sweet bird

Across the paradise of the limitless sky

Happiness would brim in my heart

Peace would flutter through my wings

My dignity would glide across the blue

That is when I would have found it

That is when I shall be free . . . .
