Yes, I'm a beggar

I'm a vagrant, yeah

My nose is bigger

than my self, ha ha

 

I am a dog, darn it

Am worth every bad thing

I am as thin as flat meat

None would give me a ring

 

And yes, yes, yes

I confess-es-es

But truth lies beneath

Beneath (beneath) me is myself

I'm with myself, I'm not alone

Beneath, I'm not all in lone lone lone

Bene-e-e-e-ath me, is myself (ma self yeah)

Bene-e-e-e-ath, Way beneath

 

A beggar eats loads

Like he's a great king 

And do you all know?

True beauty lies in

 

A dog is loyal

Am atleast worth something 

I escape like a Royal

I've myself as my King

 

And yes, yes, yes

I confess-es-es

But truth lies beneath

Beneath (beneath) me is myself

I'm with myself, I'm not alone

Beneath, I'm not all in lone lone lone

Bene-e-e-e-ath me, is myself (ma self yeah)

Bene-e-e-e-ath, Way beneath

 

And yes, yes, yes (Oh yeah)

I confess-es-es (myself)

But truth lies beneath

Beneath (beneath) me is myself

I'm with myself (not alone)

(Beneath) I'm not all in lone lone lone

Bene-e-e-e-ath me, is myself

Way, Way beneath (beneath yeah)

Beneath me is myself (Beneath)


The author's comments:

I've faced a lot in my life. But, I'm no damsel in distress. I cry but I smile outside. Like Elsa says in frozen, "You'll never see my cry", I live my life like that. There is a person, a 12 year old but behaves like he is a mature 62 year old. I need not to mention that person's name for he knows who he is. Yesterday, 11th of December, 2021, he separated me and one of my most loving relatives by creating havoc and drama, and his next plan is to separate me from my other relative. I don't know why he is like that and no one listens to me when I complain about it. I wrote this song to console myself and I think I'm not alone in any situation. I HAVE MYSELF. I dedicate this poem to myself

And I dedicate this poem to every reader of Teen Ink.
