    I ain't hating on you
    I'm just loving on me
    Who I am
    Understand
    Is on a shoreland
    That still demands
    Me to hate
    The distant state
    Which consemplates
    Taking my life
    Placing it's destiny
    Into another's hand
    Killing the stares I get
    In the glare of men
    Who transcend pass pretend
    Within believing I am not worthy
    To breathe the same breath
    Look at me like I am still the seed
    Of a enslaved breed
    Leaving me suspended in this space
    Displaced in this constant state
    Of the expectancy of hate
    But I'm not hating on you
    I'm just loving on me
    The one who be royal
    Clothed in God's glory
    Got a victory to talk about
    Far past His story
    Blameless I am not
    Just not prepared to be caught
    See past
    The Bulllllsssshhhhhhh.....
    Tell that to the B-witch
    Cuz I be Queen
    For real
    If you feel like
    It ain't right
    For me to be game tight
    Playa
    Pull your trump card
    Then take your
    Wanna be hard ***
    Black to your partnas
    You call your dogs
    Black to the b-witch
    You conceived a child with
    Your so-called baby mama
    With so much drama
    Document
    That stupid **** for
    Daytime
    Primetime
    All the time
    You wasting on
    Hating your **** self!
    If you can’t see
    The wealth that
    Makes you a
    King
    Queen
    Then it seems
    I know why you
    Think I am hating on you
    Untrue
    I ‘m just loving on me
    What’s wrong wit’ that
    A Black Gurl
    In a colored world
    Wants a brothaman
    All others who misunderstand
    I’m not hating on you
    I’m just loving on me
    Not a hater by far
    I simply hate how
    We are
    Far from loving one another
    I simply hate the very thing
    That has wronged us from the start
    Ignorance
    Is definitely
    Never will you be
    You just act like one
    The bastard son
    Slavery breeded
    You to hate me
    Hate yourself then
    ‘Cuz I am the mother
    Of all men
    Regurgitated
    I can never b-witch
    That’s a pregnant dog
    You don’t wanna mess wit’
    Or you might get
    Your necked gripped
    All the while you hanging
    Remember your foul *** ways
    Hear the voice of my ancestors
    Speak through this Queen
    Clearly I say
    I am not hating on you
    I’M JUST LOVING ON ME
    Best believe.

    Spoken Like a Warrior Queen!

    Wonderfully written with a voice of experience, done in a style and class of it's own. This one brought it on home.
    Blessings on Ya House!

    those first two lines say sooo much...and they are so true for someone in a situation where they don't get the love or respect they deserve...
