Somebody

Somebody’s been lying to you
They told you that you were different
And that you’re different made you less
And that you’re less made you a useless mess

Somebody’s been lying to you
They told you no one could love you
That everyone else is normal and above you
Which led to you undervaluing you

Somebody’s been lying to you
They told you to apologize for who you are
Because who you are isn’t quite right enough
And that maybe if you fight enough
One day you might just be worthy of acceptance and validation

Somebody’s been lying to you
Making you feel like you don’t belong
Making you feel like your life is all wrong
Making you feel like you’re weak when you are obviously strong.

Guess who’s been lying to you
Who’s been making tears well up in your eyes
And telling you all kinds of lies
About the value you bring to this life

YOU have been lying to you
You tried lying to me too
But I’m not buying what you’re selling
In fact from the rooftops I’m yelling…
“YOU IS KIND.
YOU IS SMART
YOU IS IMPORTANT.”

So stop lying to you
Because no matter how often you do
The lies you tell yourself…
WILL NEVER BE TRUE!
