I Will Be Heard

You may look at me

And see someone whom you think is ignorant.

You may look at me

And see someone whom you think isn't very bright.

Well, you'd be wrong,

Although you think you're right.

Is it so wrong

That I have an opinion on things?

Is everyone entitled to their own opinion

Except for me?

And you may think that's the whole,

But that's only a part.

I am also looked down on

Because I am smart

But you know what?

I refuse to dumb myself down,

And this is the part that bothers,

For a society that believes

We should conform to the ways of others.

But I don't care what you think,

And I don't care what you say.

I cam make my own choice,

I have my own life.

I have a voice,

And I WILL BE HEARD!
