Lightning (Watch Them Crash Like Thunder)

Too short?
Wear heels.
Too fat?
Skip meals.

Too quiet?
Scream loud.
Too shy?
Be proud.

You can change all you want,
Obey every little taunt,
But you can’t change what’s inside;
Someone too unique to hide.

Too alone?
Change you.
Too stuck?
Run through.

Too smart?
Play dumb.
Too hurt?
Act numb.

Listen to their barbs if you must,
Just don’t for acceptance lust.
Hear my words and listen well;
You are you, so scream and shout and fucking yell.

Too ugly?
Go hide.
Too lost?
Find tide.

Too you?
Too sunny?
Be a storm.

Because you can change outside,
Never on the in,
Be you and be proud;
Individuality is not a sin.

Too you?
Fuck them.
Too sunny?
You’re a storm.

Be you and be proud;
Individuality is not a sin.

Be a storm.
