I DESERVE

I deserve to laugh and I deserve to sing
I deserve the peace and joy that love will bring
And I deserve all the gifts that come my way
So hear me loud, hear me strong, hear me say that I deserve

I have the right to love & be loved in return
I have the right to keep the riches that I earn
I have the right to have some very special friends
So hear me loud, hear me strong, I’ll defend that I deserve

I deserve to dance and I deserve to laugh
I have the right to seek and find my special path
I deserve to be the one who earns respect
So hear me loud, hear me strong, I’ll protect that I deserve

I deserve to keep my body fit & strong
Self awareness is the journey that I’m on
I commit to give my body loving health
So hear me loud, hear me strong, This is my wealth, I deserve
