    my name is serenti
    as you can plainly see
    and while i seem so sane
    there's 2 sides of me
    you see the sollege i attend,
    i'm a minority that's a fact.
    and with 50,000 students
    not have are black.
    I keep my cool
    most of the time
    takin my anger out in
    my poetry and rhymes
    but as I sit in my dorm
    i hear two inner voices,
    one sounds high and uppity
    and da othas mean and coarse.
    I sit and i ponder then
    da voice starts to speak,
    straight from MY mouth
    right through MY teeth.
    The mean and coarse
    voice speaks up first
    she sounds piss ta da
    third power and in need
    to be heard

    Now I know ya'll don't
    know me but I know ya'll
    my names biatcha and I want
    it all.
    You see serenti you
    use to be just like me you know
    back in da ghetto with day-day and lil e.
    now serenti all dis time you been
    hidin in dis white school
    keepin yo self goin by not wantin
    to be a fool.
    i've been hidin back herre deep
    in da cut, waitin to let yo dumb ***
    know wats up.
    You see bein round dese white
    people ain't did you no good
    you shoulda jus went to community
    college right in da hood.
    now you've got two of us
    right inside of you
    snowflake speak up and
    dayum be cool.

    i sit and i wait and i dayum
    near choke, cuz da next voice
    scared me as soon as it spoke.

    now I know this is a peculiar
    experience being that your
    perfectly alright
    but one night at orientation
    i helped you speak to right
    and walla! here i am not exactly
    in the flesh,
    but the best part of you none
    the less.
    you see my name is snowflake
    and i'm the innner you
    the one who tells you what you
    HAVE to do.
    You know the one that said
    no club tonight
    and who kept biatcha from
    gettin into fights.

    Now hol up hol up
    wit yo uppity ***
    you ain't good fa nothin
    unless you studyin fa a
    class.
    you see now you talkin bout
    biatcha and you know
    dats dead wrong.
    what about who stayed
    wit yo black *** when you
    were alone
    who told dat white gurl
    off when she called you
    a *****
    and who got you home
    and off da block snowflake
    how you figga

    now now theres no need
    to get fiesty or mean and
    crude
    i said lets just talk and get
    this through
    you see serenti we've
    been talking amongst ourselves
    for a long long time
    and we've decided that either
    you can me or biatcha at any
    one time
    and that's not fair so you have
    to decide keep yourself in the
    ghetto and or stay by my side

    hol up hol up one mo gin
    how you goin make her chose
    when me and her are within
    we da dream team baby da brain
    and da bronze we don't need you
    we already numba one

    npw now i'm not being competive
    just being as you say real
    either i leave and she says or the
    other way that's the deal

    you don't have to chose serenti
    and if you do pick me
    a lii bit of ghetto is all you need

    now as i sit and i think what da
    hell i'm goin do

    do i wanna continue bein uppity
    or hard and cool
    do i wanna stay in college and
    be smart and white
    or i wanna be the normal
    me black and tight.

    biatcha gets silent and
    snowflakes hums
    and now i've made my
    decision and da thinkins
    done

    now snowflake, i say,
    i appreciate yo skillz and
    yo brain
    but without biatcha nothins
    da same
    so da verdicts says and i
    clearly state that snowflake plz
    return on a lata date
    how bout 10 years 20 years or
    how bout neva
    cuz me and biatcha da
    dream team and no we DONT
    know no betta!!

    absolutly stunning and concise. Yeah! be a whole lot of black and a little bit of white. It's a white mans world and we need to know how to play the game. Once you're on top, then flip yor change.
    ENJOYED IT!
