Inside of Me

Why- won’t anybody

Try- to see what’s inside of me.

Maybe it’s because- I walk with my head down

I try- to avoid the crowds

And I don`t raise my hand to speak in class

Why- won`t anybody

Try- to see what`s inside of me

Maybe it`s because- at lunch when I`m with my friends

I nod- and ask questions to keep the focus off of me

Oh why- won`t anybody

Try to see what`s inside of me

Oh why- can`t they see

That I am ready to speak

I just don`t think that they are listening

But if you- look right at me

And ask me what I believe

I`ll tell you what`s on my mind

And I won`t walk with my head down

I will turn and face the crowds

And tell them exactly what I think

I won`t ignore my friends

Or need to be the center of attention

I`ll have a conversation instead of just talking at them

I`ll keep my head up

And I`ll get- to the top

To show them what I can be

Until then, I`ll write this down

And try to avoid the crowds

Then sit quietly and wonder

Why won`t anybody

Try to see what`s inside of me

The End
