    I come in this world like you.
    With nothing my skin is brand new.
    A world to discover, we soon learn to cover.
    And find out it's not all about you.
    When I was a lil girl I knew, that my mom
    and dad loved me it's true.
    But the lesson was not just to get all I could,
    but to share what I have and try to be good.

    It's not always about you.
    When you do the things that you do.
    Sacrifices we all made them.
    Dues I'm sure we all paid them.
    But I tell you it's not all about you.
    Sure you have your opinion and you feel
    you have to demand some respect.
    But instead you sound demented and what
    you fear you reject.
    But the lesson is not just to brag and to boast.
    It's to share words of wisdom and even a toast.

    When we leave this world we shall take nothing.
    The skin on our bodies some wrinkled some not.
    The places we are going may be cool , may be hot.
    But it's not always about you.
    When you do the things that you do.
    Remember that others are watching and learning.
    And what are they learning about you?
    Between being born and the dying.
    Has there been joy, sadness and sorrow?
    Have you shared what you have , have you had to
    borrow?
    Have you blessed someone, have you been blessed?
    Have you been tested, have you passed the test.
    No matter who you are and where you go...
    It's not always about you...

    Thanks so much for responding!

    You know I am just a truthsayer...
    Got to say what it is on my mind.
    Got to open eyes of the blind.
    You see you are going through life
    like a fool boo...IF YOU THINK IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!
    Cause it ain't all about you!
    SHARE SOME LOVE! SHARE SOME
    KNOWLEDGE...JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN!

    BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE! :thanks:
