They told me to be embrace the darkness,
They told me to speak up,
They told me to always hold my smile
That this life wasn't always tough.
They told me there was no need to fear,
That my monsters were unreal.
They told me that this life was mine
This life was oh so dear.
They told me to always be ME,
Even in challenging times.
For without me who else would I be
Like music without a rhyme.
They told me to be stronger
They told me to be brave.
I was born to be a fighter.
I was born to slay.
They told me everything I needed to hear
Their words were no lies.
They prepared me for this big bad world.
They taught me to surpass the sky.
