As dumb as me.

Sometimes felt like I'm not good enough

though I'd hide when times got hard or tough

I may be afraid, but I still know my right

I can stand and be counted, I'll try and fight

but instead you push me to stand behind you

as if I'm not good enough in anything I do

tell me things that I already know

hold my hand when it's time to go

I'm tired of this childish act

Feel like I'm useless, stupid and trapped

I may only be accused of being slow

but repeat things again that I already know

show me the way when I wrote the map

I have my legs, but carry me that lap

because although we are equal, you don't see

that I'm not as smart as you, I'm as dumb as me.
