A newer year, a newer me

A me truer than others can even begin to see

My inner child with rainbow shoes skips into light

Out-shining the “Betty Crocker” without much of a fight

I’m tired of trying to fit into expectations

And no longer care for those subtle accusations

I dance to my own beat and that’s just fine with me

At the end of the day, I’m happier and free

So go ahead and laugh, make fun as you see fit

This bright-eyed goddess doesn’t give a shit
