I have had enough of self-denial

I am not the one on trial

Its society

I have had enough of this sobriety

I am going to break the chain

No need to explain

You have been applying the screw

And you always knew

That eventually I would crack

And start fighting back

I am starting a new page

The world is my stage

I am throwing away my black clothing

I no longer have a need for self-loathing

What did you expect?

I have regained my self-respect
