    I aint never hurt nobody
    But seems somebody out to hurt me
    Just doin me
    Only
    me
    me
    me….

    And its seems it aint enough..
    Rumors fly
    Rumors of lies
    As eyes watch me…
    All I do is be me…
    Don’t try to change me
    Don’t try to uncover
    Who I am
    Ask don’t assume
    Not a mystery
    Just plain ole me
    Trust…I am gone do me
    And continue being that I am….
    Profound in my walk
    Outstanding in being me…
    Fold your arms
    And watch…
    But if you need to know…
    Try asking
    Before you think you know me
    Its only me...little ole me…
    Just me
    A black queen
    A warrior….
    A mother
    A daughter
    A friend to all those
    Who deserve it…
    No pretending
    Just me
    Nothing special to you
    But special to me

    See let me break it down….

    I am only human
    Trying to stay in the race
    At my pace…
    Doing my thang
    And thas being me

    Real as it gets…
    But then you ask
    Who am I….
    Here goes the he say she say
    Game playing..
    Trading your soul
    To complete a rumor
    As it all twist out your mouth in the wind
    Guess it makes you what
    Feel good about you....
    I am still gone do me

    Some say I am different
    So think what you really like
    If I worried about what people think
    I would go crazy
    Trying to get their acceptance
    See I am who I am
    I aint never hurt nobody
    But seems somebody out to hurt me
    For being me
    Only
    me
    me
    me….

    They greatest gift you can give yourself is the
    opportunity to be you! I read somewhere that
    people tend to hate things in other people
    that they hate about themselves.
    I find that not to be true always.
    Sometimes they just hate the things
    that they wish they could be.

    Continue to be you!!!!!

    Heartfelt Write!!!!!!

    That's the truth, all anyone can truly be is, themselves. Keep flowing.

    I am a true reflection of me
    when I look in the mirror, guess who I see?

    when I do a days work, guess who gains?
    when I get sick, guess who feels the pain?

    If trouble comes into my life, it's I who would have made it
    I'll conquer it and do my best to deal and understand it
    ...see, "I am, that I am"...
    and that's being me.

    wonderful piece, I loved it...thanks for sharing and being "you"
