(No Longer) Flawless

It's okay to not be flawless.

Comparisons are easily made

In a world where imperfections

are everywhere to be seen

Lost in the way of society

Flawlessness is all I’ve ever felt

(No) why can I not be myself…

or anything close to all I’ve ever dreamt of

Why?..

 

I’ve got to stand up

Make a move

Be the one to change the truth to what I want it to be

I’ve got to get up

Change the lines

Make the smile completely mine

No longer ‘bout what they say

 

I’m going to be beautiful

I’m going to have hope

I’m going to be free from these chains that tie me in

No longer flawless

 

Cause they say, “This is wrong and this is right”

I’m stuck in the place where I can’t change my mind

I have no choice

I’m running on and on

Trying not to make a single sound

I have to be invisible…invisible

 

(or should I just…give up?...maybe not…no this is crazy)

 

Rise up!

Light the night!

Be the one to make my life how I want it to be

Move on

Get things right

I’ll fall again but I’ll never care

‘bout a single thing they say

 

I’m going to be beautiful

I’m going to have hope

I’m going to be free from these chains that tie me in

No longer flawless

 

Running and trying to not believe the lies

They say to me, these voices in my mind

Maybe just: I’m taking a wrong step

And maybe just: I’m too weak

Am I too weak?

 

I want to be beautiful

I want to have hope

I want to break free from this cage

Fly through the skies on my own

Don’t want to be flawless…

Don’t want to be perfect!

 

I’m going to be beautiful

I’m going to have hope

I’m going to be free from these chains that tie me in

No longer flawless

 

‘cause it’s okay: to be imperfect

And it’s okay…

To not be flawless.

The End
