Trust me enough
to let me stand to my full height
Sing with me as I test
the strength and reach of my voice
for I must.
I have long outgrown the tiny space
marked out for myself so many years ago,
and no choice remains
but to at last become
who I am.
You must have known
this day would come,
or did you think
were just for show?
