« They can say
Anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I won't face the ground
I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach.
Oh Lord, they do try,
Hard to make me feel that I,
Don't matter at all,
But I refuse to fall,
Tell me what I believe or loose faith in my dreams,
Cause there's a light in me
That shines brightly..
@mariahcarey wrote these words back in 1999 for the song - Can’t take that away -
Growing up different, these words meant so much to me. I can’t forget these sleepless nights, wondering what was wrong with me until I found out that nothing was wrong with me.
It was just the society I was living in which was completely messed up.
So to anyone out there reading this, be proud of who you are 💫
