Hear My Voice
Amy, Age 13, Merced, CA

Iím tired of being left behind
And shoved away
You donít listen to me
And you never have

You treat me like Iím six
Trying to shield me from the world
To think that he was dying
And you didnít even tell me

I want to be heard
I want to be something
Iím screaming out now
Hear my voice

You cast me in his shadow
He was always one step ahead
One step better
He still is

It could have been different
If you had seen me for who I am
Not who he is
And who you want me to be

I want to be heard
I want to be something
Iím screaming out now
Hear my voice

I am my own person
I canít be something Iím not
I canít do something thatís not me
And that is what youíre trying to make me do

I wonít live by these rules anymore
Iím stepping out of his shadow
And into the light
I am becoming me

I want to be heard
I want to be something
Iím screaming out now
Hear my voice

You wonít muffle my cries anymore
I want the world to hear
That Iím not in the shadows
And that Iím no longer second best

I am a person
With feelings and pains
Believe it or not
I am made of flesh too

I want to be heard
I want to be something
Iím screaming out now
Hear my voice
