Missing Link

I was never supposed to fit in 
Forcing me to view the world more expansively 
No stereotype could box me in 
Dictating a life I wasn't living 
Who are you to tell me 
I'm not who I am 
I'm uniquely me 
Created in inequity 
No one can judge me 
But the God whom created me 
Must I fit into a role 
Belated to clowns parading around in clothes already worn 
Must I be a fool for a cause 
A block I don't own 
People who don't give a fuck whether I starve or mourn 
Must I be whom you want me to be 
To fit into a society 
Pretending to be
