    I know some girls dont like me
    WHAT
    Am is susposed to care
    is it something i do
    or something i say
    that messes up someones day
    so they decide to talk about me
    behind my back
    saying things that aren't tru
    because i dont do what they expect me to
    Or could it be shes upset
    cause what she wanted didn't want her back
    or what she had she couldn't keep
    cause what she had really wanted me
    Dont Let My Words upset You
    Im Just being Me

    High saddidie is what they call me
    when i dont stop to say high
    stuck up is what they yell when i just pass them by
    too good is what they say when i just look at them and smile
    But in actuality their game is wack
    and really not worth my time
    Dont let my words upset you im just being me

    Rowdy is what they call us when we get crunk in a crowd
    Ghetto is what they say when we get crunk and talk to loud
    ****** is what they named us when we stopped taking their mess
    But now we've turned it all around and its us
    their trying to impress
    Dont let my words upset you Im Just Being Me

    Jealousy is evil cant you see
    this world aint perfect
    and im just trying to be me
    being yourself isnt hard for you to do
    if you stop criticizing others and start
    evaluating the things you do
    Cause im JUST BEING ME
    YOU NEED TO JUST BE YOU.

    yes! truth here...and moreso it seems people are angry not with who you really are but the fact that you don't fit the way they perceive you to be...

    tight flow...

    One,

    feelin this all da way to the end

    ha ha ha loved the part where you said
    I know some gurls don't like me
    Am i supposed to care, hee hee hee that was all too original gurlie sis
    and then the part where you said
    saying things that aren't true
    because i don't do what they expect me to
    or could it be she's upset
    because what she wanted didn't want her back
    or what she had she couldn't keep
    cause what she had really wanted me
    Don't Let My Words Upset You
    I'm Just Being Me!

    Ha ha ha ha
    You had me trippin off that one fa realz
    Haters! ha ha ha

    Can't wait to read some more.
    Encore!
    Bravo
    Applause

    Sincerely,
    Desert Storm

    P.S. sometimes ya just got to prove em wrong!
    Go ahead gurl
    Can anybody say P.Y.T.?
    P.s.s. I forgot one more thing, in midst our feeling crazy,sexy,cool, lets not forget pride comes before every fall. I know this to be true. we can't allow ourselves to get to puffed up because that how you get hurt in the end. On the flip side I'm happy to hear a sistah reclaim her throne, feel me. Keep reppin. bye!

    jealousy is a wasted emotion..

    and when displayed is really a reflection of one's own insecurities..

    I like the way you ended this..so true..
