Because (For My Mother)

Because i’m difficult
Because i’m not fooled easily
Because i’m of my own mind
Because i’m quick witted
Because i’m smart
Because i’m a smart ass
Because i’m fiercely independent and always want to remain so

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i wasn’t confident
Because i wasn’t sure
Because i was foolish
Because i didn’t listen
Because i failed again
Because i tried again
Because i never gave up and don’t intend to

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i’m an artist
Because i’m a writer
Because i’m a filmmaker
Because i’m creative
Because i’m imaginative
Because i saw differently
Because i thought differently and will continue to do so

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way

Because i’m you in a different time
Because i’m you under different circumstances
Because i’m you under different conditions
Because i’m you the second time around
Because i’m your long hours
Because i’m mostly your sweat and tears
Because i’m the sum of your sacrifices connected by blood muscle and bone

Because it wasn’t always this way
Because i wasn’t always this way
