Let me be my own heroine: A Ballad

Because I’ve had my share of let downs and a promise will never do

Let me be my own heroine.

Power is never given and I’ve paid my dues

Let me be my own heroine.

Sometimes things don’t come full circle, but they will do

Let me be my own heroine.

If I’m trying to make it work and seem a little blue

Let me be my own heroine.

When every direction is bullshit and all I do is rue

Let me be my own heroine

When I’m in a whole different place and it all seems so askew

Let me be my own heroine.

When my demons come out to play and throw shadows at you

Let me be my own heroine.

My words may get in the way and I’ll speak riddles, construed

Let me be my own heroine.

If I set myself ablaze and you’re watching while I do

Let me be my own heroine.

Even when I’m sick, even when I’m brusied

Let me be my own heroine.

Chronic resillence is what I do

Let me be my own heroine.

I will make mistakes but, find purpose when I do

Let me be my own heroine.

Don’t spit your pity at me when just your ear will do

Let me be my own heroine.

When I’m ready, I will share it with you

Let me be my own heroine.

It’s a tall order, only filled by a few

Let me be my own heroine.

People will hate you, people will love you

Let me be my own heroine.

Just let people do what they do

Let me be my own heroine.

Make no mistake, I appreciate you

Let me be my own heroine.

Lets just be very clear about the expectations due

Let me be my own heroine.

have an obligation to speak my truth

Let me be my own heroine.

I can make my own way, I always do

Let me be my own heroine.

Just love me unconditionally and be a soft place to fall when I do

But, let me be my own heroine.
