    Correcting the habits
    From awhile ago

    Past afflictions
    Raw and so tired
    Of repeat (the same old)

    Tired of people
    Instigating and navigating
    Theirselves around your world

    Tired of being hated
    Mistreated and violated upon

    And though I still
    Have to love myself

    And at times
    It's very hard

    It's a long
    Bumpy road

    When you don't know
    Where your supports coming from

    So I'll journey on
    And learn not to worry as much

    Being patient
    And being strong

    Positive
    And I'm
    Going to keep on loving myself
    Even though it seems
    Like I'm carrying the world on my shoulders

    Loving myself dosn't consist of what you say
    Or what you think or believe to be true about me

    Because only I know the real me
    And I can't listen to you
    Even till the end of time
    I'm going to still be here
    With an everlasting song
    And everlasting word
    And an everlasting desire

    Because you don't know me
    Or what I'm about
    With or without you
    I'm going to keep loving myself.
