When I was a child everybody told me,
That I can be, whatever I want to be,
I wanted to be a clown, a princess and a rich man's wife,
When I was seven I wanted to be a pregnant woman, be Barbie marry Ken and live a fabulous life,
From when I was a kid until now,I’ve pictured myself in a pilot suit, a police uniform and wedding gown.
I sincerely believed that everybody could be,
What they wanted to be
.Now I’m not a child anymore,
But these words are a part of my heart,Only death can tear us apart.
I’m Arwa , always with many dreams,I’m healthy, I’m young, I’m smart and I’m free,
You trying to take my visions will not imprison me,
You treat me like a person with special needs,
You mock my visions, mock my dreams,
You can tell me that I won’t succeed,Tell me that I have false beliefs.
You try to damage, crush and destroy,my work, my hopes, me.
But,I can be whatever I want to be,
Whether you agree or disagree.
