You can tell me to do this

and it'll be my reason not to.

You can say I should

and I'll think I shouldn't.

I don't like to do things

because other people say to.

You can call me names

laugh in my face.

But I ignore that

I don't need to care about that.

I'm going to be me

no matter what you say or do.

To myself I'll remain true

regardless.
