    I won’t say any names
    I know one who will bother me
    Knowing these so-and-so’s enjoying
    Making it miserable
    And thinking that this is some game
    Me being different from the crowd
    And nice as well as smart
    3.5 GPA
    And they expect me to think that
    They broke my heart
    Knowing someone who hears a voice
    Pertaining to do right, decides to do wrong
    And juggle it around like balls from a circus
    And think that it will last that long
    Finding it so hilarious
    And telling all of these lies
    The new century has finally come
    And you can’t me cry.

    Two months was average time; she needed cash from friends
    Becoming broke and wondering:
    ’Where has my best friend been?’
    There was a nervous attitude
    Forgot about the grass
    She felt ashamed and sat around, gryped
    And fiening for cash
    The cruel remarks continuing
    About the way I look
    I didn’t shed a single tear
    Although things aren’t going too good
    Although the hurtful words went on
    I somewhat wondered why
    This continues to happen like it does
    But I still maintain to keep my head up high
    And you can’t make me cry.

    I wrote this a long time ago when I was going through a lot of trouble with my adopted mother and how she treated me and her other children.
