    For years….
    I let the people convince me…
    ….that I wasn’t fabulous, that I wasn’t…..
    Fierce

    That I wasn’t a force to be reckoned with…

    That I was a "nice girl" with the bronzy glow
    But too intimidated to step on anybodies…
    Toes

    Please tha people, People never pleasing me
    Getting over like Rover on me…
    Never could I say that I was pretty
    Cas if you say your pretty, when your pretty
    Then the haters say your snobby
    But if I was overweight, like Monique
    Then I could get away with saying I’m beautiful baby
    The people always have great things to say
    Until you become a threat to them in some kind of way
    The silence becomes thick, and the praises go away
    Mentally and Physically Im the soup de’jour of the day
    No more will I shy away
    Trying to be overly humble
    So the haters feel okay….
    Eat these poetic words, cas its truth in what I say
    Im not gonna dumb down so you’ll accept me
    Cas Ima bad a** broad, and a Diva baby

    I don’t need a co-signer on these thoughts
    My credit of words is top tier
    You might not be able to Stand Me
    But you can’t Sit Me either, my dear
    I got a new attitude…called the sweet and salty mix
    And your either for me, or against me
    And that goes for dudes as well as chicks
    Get out of my lime light, you’ve had it too long
    And now Im feeling fearless
    With you or alone
    Clear the path off my b.o.a.r.d.w.a.l.k
    Cas girlfriend is coming through
    Fresh off the Bad Broad express
    If you want to be a member, Im here to recruit you
    Its time to Re-claim, Own, Flaunt, Display, and Parade
    How ridiculously sexy and intelligent you are, Grade A
    B is for suckas
    And I do myself a dis-service to be grade C
    D aint in my vocabulary
    And Haters get E’s
    So get yo a** in the breeze, if you can't handle
    The new me
    Been doing some re-construction
    Building skyscrapers baby!
    So look both ways fo you cross me
    Cas my response in 09 is different than than 03

    You may have known me then
    But you don’t know me today.
    But I’ve just given you a crash course
    So don’t play dumb okay.
    Step to me correct, or get your behind turned away
    Pops, Don’t tell me Im beautiful
    I already know this okay
    Compliment my mind
    How in it, you escape away
    Come at me harder, Im a new woman
    and It’s a Brand New day

    Aint nothing more to say.

    If we wait for others to like us for our world to be ok, we'll be waiting, and time waits for no one. Tight drop.
