    How can you judge me?
    You don't know me.
    How can you
    Throw rocks in a glass house.
    This is the way I was design to be.
    My heart and my courage
    Comes from years of
    Living.
    I look away
    And look toward the children
    Have you forgotten that
    Have you?

    The fight
    the struggle is for them.
    I care about what you say
    But
    I chose to learn.
    teach and Preach.

    I chose to love
    Instead of hate

    You don't know anything about me.
    Don't look with your eyes
    Look with your spirit
    You're so busy throwing rocks
    In a glass house, you don't see how
    it breaks the glass and
    How it cuts the children feet, and how they
    Lay bleeding, and how
    When you look in there eyes
    They don't know how to cry.
    Because they feel no one
    Will hear them, save them
    love them

    There’s nothing wrong with me
    What’s wrong with you?

    You don't know the steps I walk
    Or how this warrior carries her spear
    My mission is our sons
    and daughters
    I teach to open there eyes

    You're throwing rocks in the
    House made of glass

    I'm building roads and bridges
    smoothing out a path.
    So they can go on strong.


    And the struggle goes on.

    Some find more pleasure with trying to knock down a strong foundation, than helping to build upon it. But a foundation as strong as yours, will withstand those pathetic rocks. Keep doing what you do.
