to every boy

Amelia Meyer

to every boy

to every boy who ever looked at me like I was crazy
to every boy who ever laughed at my dreams
to every boy who ever acted like I wasn’t there

i am crazy
i have laughable dreams
some days my voice is elsewhere

but my crazy is crazy in love with my life, all smiles when I look around
dreams are funny until you look up and I’m actually chasing them down
the days I seem invisible, trust me, silence is the loudest sound

taking my time, I’m rolling easy
‘cause I know that if you ever have the chance to just be
just be

gotta learn who you are and learn how you’re healing
glass rooms are the only place for a glass ceiling
never will I let your masculinity overshadow my strength
and in this stretch you best turn to look back a length
‘cause boy I’m gonna pass you with a smile on my face
