Erase (Just A Kid)

Once again I'm alone
In a world of my own
Where I can do whatever I want to

Can't stand another day
Someone make their words go away
'Cause I know I'm not like you

So how can I try to fly
When you keep breaking my wings
So how can I reach for the sky
When you're just not listening
Just because I'm not
Like them, but so what?
So I'm breaking out right now

But I know
I'm gonna make it someday
I'm gonna make it my way
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to them
That I can make it too
So go on, just laugh at me
Someday you will be sorry
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to myself
But not to people like you
As I erase your words from my memory
Don't ever think of turning back to me

Once again alone I fall
To my knees, hit the ground
Take the beating quietly
And pray that it'll be over soon
So now I shout, hear my call
So the world will hear the sound
Like a lone wolf howling endlessly
Howling at the distant moon

So how can I try to fly
When you pretend I've got nothing to show
So how can I reach for the sky
When you call me stupid, but what do you know?
Just because I'm not
Like them, but so what?
So I'm breaking out right now

But I know
I'm gonna make it someday
I'm gonna make it my way
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to them
That I can make it too
So go on, just laugh at me
Someday you will be sorry
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to myself
But not to people like you
As I erase your words from my memory
Don't ever think of turning back to me

Now your words don't hurt anymore
No I don't feel a thing
And I will fly on forevermore
So this song I will sing'
And you'll never break my spirit
Though you may break my bones
'Cause I'm more than just another kid
I'm gonna find my own way home

But I know
I'm gonna make it someday
I'm gonna make it my way
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to them
That I can make it too
So go on, just laugh at me
Someday you will be sorry
'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to myself
But not to people like you
As I erase your words from my memory
Don't ever think of turning back to me

Another powerful and wonderful poem about not letting others words cloud your mind to bring you down.

This is really great and has an important message in it.

One of my favorite lines: "'Cause I'm just a kid out to prove to myself
But not to people like you
As I erase your words from my memory"

Well done and thank you for sharing. :)
