Mama please forgive me.

I never intended to be the reflection that you hate

the part of America you wish you could change 

the freedom flowing from my lips just keep shackling you 

and I do not know what to do. 

You swear you never raised me to be like this 

but you raised me to love and to care 

and I promise to stay true to that

even if it feels like you and I are on different teams 

different sides 

different planets 

you  made me who I am 

and I cannot apologize for that.
