    Can we not pick each other up without knocking each other back down?
    Life is just too short to stand that kind of ground.
    I’m so tired of the bickering.
    The cold hearted lies.
    If you don’t know me step back is what I advise.
    You see me day to day.
    Nothing good to say.
    Truth is I’m a sister.
    Daughter, mother, someone’s beloved wife.
    Have too much going on for stress in my life.
    You say I’m going wrong with what I do.
    Well I see fault in you too.
    I love the way you try to get inside my mine.
    You’ll never because you are too blind.
    I have my ways of tuning you out.
    Believe that without a doubt.
    I’m not about to be your prey.
    I look at you and all I can do is laugh.
    You don’t know the half.
    You cannot faze me.
    A greater god made me.
    Can’t you see that self hate is wrong?
    I’m too strong
    For what you have tried to do.
    You cannot bring me down.
    This is my place, my ground.

    and cant you see that the beauty is in the eye of the beholder
    but somehow as the mother i seem to carry the weight of the world of my shoulder
    but as i get older
    the world seem to me getting colder

    because somewhere i've been judged
    cause im not jumping to ones tune i've been nudged

    to a place that i shouldnt be
    and it took me going through the doors of hell to see

    that without my Heavenly Father he open the doors to opportunity
    and that he's the one that will give me salvation and allow me to be free

    been a slave to a man
    have been his field hand

    but i learned i must stand on my own two feet
    even tho man hatred for one another has taken defeat

    but still i pray
    that if the lord's willing that things go my way

    and that the world may see that time is about to end
    and i aint worried if i dont have a friend
    my children life depend

    on me
    i gotta be
    what im suppose to be

    the loving person that i am
    the loving mother that i am
    the loving friend that i am
    the loving daughter that i am

    and i believe the rest will follow
    even once upon a time when i felt my life is hollow
    i no longer try to swallow

    the devil's pill
    i try not to let him get any more thrills

    off me
    because i want to be

    in the prescence of my Heavenly Father whom has shown me the path
    and to the one who's been around for the aftermath

    and to the one who loves me even if the world dont.........

    Some have such low esteem for themselves that they feel that knocking you down will lift themselves up...just doesn't work that way, but they'll learn,the hard way... This was so on point, kudos to ya!!
