Sometimes, I ask myself where I would be
Had my childhood songs were filled with glee
Maybe it's different, just maybe
I'm free
To be me.


Books and stories were my step-parents
Sailed to marvelous worlds where I can escape
Life was full of vibrant colors there because
I'm free
To be me.


The sound of the radio as I dance freely
The feel of the cold rain as I run and play
The smell of Monday breakfast as I wake
I envy you, young me.
Your innocence and pure bliss.


Young Icarus, don't be afraid to fly
To dream, to laugh, and to cry
The world is wry, but please try
Fight until your last goodbye.


You might read this and be sad
Thinking your future would be bad
It's definitely hard, the life I had
But don't worry, 'coz someday I'll be free
To be me.
