I don’t want this to make me smaller
And small is how I feel
I can’t see me any longer
Your asking me to be some one who’s not real

I am jumping through all your hoops
I am singing praises of useless things
How low will your demands stoop
Before this caged bird will spread her wings

I’ve bent and changed just to suit you
I have stopped doing what makes me unique
I have stifled what I really want to do
Even softening the way I speak

My journey with you is ending
As my love towards you diminishes
It is now time for a new beginning
Before my pride is tainted with blemishes

I see the importance of silence
I know now to think before I speak
Time to use some common sense
I’m done telling you what I think

It’s one thing to adapt to a space
And another to be who your not
My hopes were to high in this case
It’s not the Utopia I once sought

I don’t want to make myself smaller
Not even if it pleases you
I’m no longer one of your followers
I’m going to try something new
