    Don't try to step in front of my strut,
    Don't try to play me wit ya fake smile.....
    Don't try to read me like Im some book,
    Don't try to speak to me like Im some child....

    Cuz see, I've peeped the game that you play,
    and i now KNOW what your all about....
    So dont be puttin' your phony on display,
    Let me tell what I've figured out......

    See, I've played the role of "NicE GiRL"
    And that mess has caused me alot of pain....
    Them pigeons took my sweetness for weakness,
    Them gutter rats thought my game was too lame.

    WELL, GET YOU A** UP OUT OF MY SUNSHINE
    And fix yo face when you look my way.....
    Stop tryin to dig up dirt in my flower garden,
    And dont be loitering around my front gate.

    Cuz see, I've peeped the game that you play,
    and i now KNOW what your all about....
    So dont be puttin' your phony on display,
    Let me tell what I've figured out......

    BE CAREFUL of people you meet late in life.
    Them follies ain't ya real friends,
    That word has been taken for granted
    To love me, you had to KNOW me back then,

    So slide that bull....to the side
    And get to SKIPPIN off my yellow brick road,
    I'll ask the wiZard to find somethin for you to do,
    Your young girly games is gettin old....

    Whats SAD is that I thought I needed yall,
    So to thy on self I became untrue.
    Trying to conjure up ways for you to like me,
    I'm so glad that Insanity is through

    I CANT BELIEVE I thought I needed you.
    Needed YOU to validate me?!!
    Thinking there was somethin' wrong with this here
    Puddling in a pool of self pity!!

    Dear Friend, if your reading this poem
    It may appear that I have turned bitterly cold
    but Reader I'm just venting my aggresions....
    Because they were dying to be let GO

    My vessel is still filled with sweet water.
    My laughter now platinum not gold,
    My happy is riding in first class
    My presence, what a sight to Behold!

    What- they -think- of- me, has taken a back seat....
    I've peeped there game, and I've grown smarter as you can see,
    Its all love, I'm still sweet as a honey bee....
    Learn your position, and know now to get up off of me...[/B]
