To Whom it May Concern
Maybe I'm a bit too outspoken, maybe it's from all the years of built up silence.
The shyness took over my body and now I'm finally breaking free, but people just don't understand me.
Maybe they never will, maybe they don't get my thrill of finally speaking up.
They thought I was always supposed to stay silent with my mouth sealed shut.
The thought of me actually speaking my mind is threatening, since they always thought they had me like a puppet on a string.
Maybe it was my heart breaking out, and without a doubt I will never shut my mouth.
People think I may have changed but they just don't know the courage I have gained.
There were times when I had no name and now I have no shame.
Some say it's an attitude but I wear this attitude like a good mood.
In this journey, it may heart feelings, gain attention and did I mention, tension.
But I'm not going to muffle the ruffle that keeps my blood flowing.
You think I'm going to jump back in that shell that will take a million years to build
Please, I don't have the time.
You are mad at what I have become.
Maybe it's you, who can't take a person standing up and making you listen.
Now your mouth is shut and you can't take what you dish out.
You thought I was someone else.
You think I am wrong for being me.
Well wait and see it only gets better for me.
