I tell myself I’m a superstar every morning.

            We’re at the Garden, but sometimes I feel like a

Fucking loser.


I just want to be queen,

            But they see wigs and lipstick

And shut down.


Genuine blood is in my spirit.

            I’m fighting for every kid that feels like I felt,

Like I still feel.


I start to think about all the people

Who tried to stop me; people are trying to

Destroy me.


I want a little dust on my shoe, one more stair-

            Well to climb. I told so many people for so long

                                    I was a superstar.
