    don't bang my head against your wall.
    my head-it hurts.
    don't crush my ego against your achievements
    keep them to yourself

    I am what I am, the way I am and I find
    peace in my nothingness. Your nothingness
    should I say.

    We grew up as sisters but now you've caught on to the
    coconut syndrom and your milk is white.
    I don't like going to the gallery to make small chat
    about picasso, rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali,
    or is it Ali? -but whatever anyway, don't take me to these
    "do's" sista.

    I am not any less cultures. My culture is in the beating of
    the African drum, the emancipation of the mind from conventional
    thought.
    You may not understand this 'cause I don't think you did
    human interaction at College.

    I am what I please, which pleases me as I am
    in my street knowledge and fantasay dreams of
    a life I could only ever want to dream about...
    life as a social lite is boring, girl.
    lets leave the world behind and be friends, you are
    my best friend, but I don't do the life girl,
    I do my own thing, and it's wild and perhaps unwanted
    but it works for me-totally.And it completes me.

    is this thing in you or in me?

    miss kemestry

    sparks fly from a thing inside.
    out of a mans' heart comes the overflow of his mouth.
    is this thing in you or is it in me?
    check the heart, check the words that come within..

    thanks for the support ya'll
