This is my first songfic, so it might be a little choppy. And yes, I edited out the cuss words.

Chapter 1

I grew up, a f***ing screw up

Tie my shoe up, wish they was newer

D***, need something newer

Breezetail sighed. He had been made a full warrior a hour ago, and was sitting his vigil, everyone else asleep. But he knew that the next morning, his life would be living hell again. He had been bullied since he had opened his eyes, and was an only child. His mother, Swiftpelt, was one of the only cats who supported him, the other being his mentor Appletuft. Breezetail's father, on the other hand? No one knew who his father was, except Swiftpelt.

In love with the baddest girl in the city, I wish I knew her
I wish I weren't so shy, I wish I was a bit more fly
I wish that I, could tell her how I really feel inside
That I'm the perfect n**** for her, but then maybe that's a lie

His thoughts drifted away, and he began to think about Flamefur, another warrior of ThunderClan. He secretly had a crush on her, but he could never summon the courage to even talk normally to her. Even though Breezetail was only a few moons younger, everyone was so kind to her. But she had this charming way of doing everything that made Breezepelt so enamored.

She like a certain type of n****, and it's clear I'm not that guy
Ball player, star player, I'm just watchin' from the side
On the bench, cause my lack of confidence won't let me fly

And then there was Redclaw. He had always bullied Breezetail along with his brother Gorseclaw, and he hated them for it. But the worst thing was that he was constantly talking to Flamefur, while Breezetail just watched awkwardly, too quiet to say anything at all.

I ain't grow up with my father, I ain't thinkin' bout that now
Fast forward four years or so from now I'll probably cry
When I realize what I missed, but as of now my eyes are dry

He wondered who his father really was, but then decided to skip over that thought. Breezetail began to grow sleepy, but continued his vigil, through the deep, cold night.


Chapter 2

Cause I'm tryna stay alive
In the city where too many n****s die
Dream in quiet tryna dodge a suit and tie
(Meaning he doesn't want a 'boring' job in an office)

The next morning, Breezetail's mentor Appletuft walked over to him, and said, "Your vigil is over now. You can get some rest." He nodded silently and walked over to the warriors den, but was stopped halfway by Redclaw. "Whatcha doing, slowpoke? Too tired to even help out the Clan?" "Appletuft said I needed rest," Breezetail grunted. Tired of Redclaw's antics, he shoved past him and took a long, peaceful nap.

Who am I? Aye who am I? (Yeah)

He began to ponder questions in his sleep. Who did he really want to be? A good warrior in ThunderClan? Did he just want to be accepted? Not even he knew the answer.

Things change, rearrange, or so do I
It ain't always for the better dawg, I can't lie
I get high cause the lows can be so cold
I might bend a little bit but I don't fold

By the time Breezetail had awoken again, it was noon. He began to walk through the camp when the deputy, Pineheart, came over to him. "You're on a patrol with Honeyfur and Fernlight. Be back by sundown." "Ok," he responded. He headed towards where Honeyfur was waiting. "Hurry, we don't want to be late!" she urged. "We haven't checked the ShadowClan border often because of the greencough outbreak a moon ago. We never know what they're up to, so Duskstar ordered us to remark all the borders." Breezetail nodded his head in understanding, he had been one of the only cats to not catch the greencough that had kept many cats in camp the past leaf-bare. Thankfully, now newleaf was beginning, though Clan life never changed.One time for my mind and two for yours
I got food for your thoughts to sooth your soul
If you see my tears fall just let me be..''Move along, nothing to see
