Not A Thing

You look at me like I’m below you
Just because I choose to be different
But I refuse to be another copy of you
So you might as well leave me alone

I’m not a thing
Which you can control
I have the right to be “me”
So get over it
I am my own

I walk into school
Not wearing the right clothes
To pass your inspection
But I don’t care, look somewhere else

I’m not a thing
Which you can control
I have the right to be “me”
So get over it
I am my own

I see that today
You picked a different girl
It’s her turn to be put down
And in the back of my head I think, “Will this ever end? ”

She’s not a thing
Which you should try to control
She has the right to be who she wants to be
So you should get over yourself
And be your own
