I don’t need permission to be me

June 2, 2018

I’m sorry for frustration
   That grows inside your head
I’m sorry you keep searching
   For something new to dread

I don’t need permission
   To be me
Don’t waste your time on worrying
   Who I’m supposed to be
I don’t need your ok
   When it’s time to take a knee
Don’t need your permission
   To be me

Maybe you should chill and put your
   Judgment to bed
Maybe you should love and try
   Forgiveness instead

I don’t need permission
   To be me
Don’t waste your time on worrying
   Who I’m supposed to be
I don’t need your ok
   When it’s time to take a knee
Don’t need your permission
   To be me

I don’t care what you learned
   In some holy book you read
And I’ll try not to judge you
   Just like Jesus said

I don’t need permission
   To be me
Don’t waste your time on worrying
   Who I’m supposed to be
I don’t need your ok
   When it’s time to take a knee
Don’t need your permission
   To be me
