I am not a stranger to the dark "Hide away," they say "'Cause we dont want your broken parts"
You can put your mind to do whatever you wanna do Just tell yourself that you capable, too But don't do things that ain't even cool And get rid of them no-good friends thats enablin' you Makin' you feel like you won't be nothin', your life crumblin' They talk, mumblin' You gon' be something, you are glorious Were no gangs, but warriors, we well-known, notorious They can't stop you or block you or mock you They mad cause you bad and they not you You fall down, but get up and skip and hop through Kick down doors for others to walk through You have a purpose, to make you say, "Did I do that?" Urkel Now we callin' reality virtue This is who I am, this is me, don't let them words hurt you
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me Look out 'cause here I come And I'm marching on to the beat I drum I'm not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me
Another round of bullets hits my skin Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in We are bursting through the barricades And reaching for the sun (we are warriors) Yeah, that's what we've become
Won't let them break me down to dust I know that there's a place for us For we are glorious
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me Look out 'cause here I come (yeah, yeah, yeah) And I'm marching on to the beat I drum I'm not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me
I'm alone, I never fit the mold The world is so cold, hold it down on my own I'm just tryna reach up to the sky, see the moon I got confidence 'cause I'm the flyest in the room And I been knocked down, but I always get up I had some fake friends, had to go and switch up Yeah, no pain, no strain, I ain't chasin' no nothing 'Cause I got more to gain, and I'm just tryna make a change I'm just doin' me, I'm in my own lane I fell down a few times, but I'm up again Marchin' to another drum, see me cross, see me bow When they thought that I was done, ah nah, here I come I'm not weak, I get on my feet No apologies, yeah, this is me
And I know that I deserve your love There's nothing I'm not worthy of
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out This is brave, this is bruised This is who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come (look out 'cause here I come) And I'm marching on to the beat I drum Marching on, marching on, marching, marching on (I'm not scared to be seen) I make no apologies, this is me
Whenever the world's gone, whenever the world's gone I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out Oh, oh, oh, this is me

Bridget from CoGood song to think of when facing up to your bullies. Not that I've done that before, I never thought of that song when doing it. I'm saying this because of the encouraging lyrics it has. Also an awesome song in general.
