    :donttell:
    Don't say a word I'm willing to tell you
    My secret
    How I got to be so rich
    Beyond being the a child of the ghetto
    If I tell you you must make me a promise
    You will never tell a soul about my gold
    The truth beyond my treasure
    Goes so very deep
    Deeper than the deepest depths within the darkest sea
    The secret to my success comes from within me
    I've learned the meaning of self worth
    And it added emence worth to me
    I know that I am the most precious gift that my own eyes
    will ever behold
    I know this fact from within it is not
    something I was told
    So when at last you see me smiling
    as though I am worth A million or more
    Just know that myself and lack of self confidence
    have settled our little score
    The ashes have cleared and I'm still here
    My riches I have now won

    :luv: I'm truly in love with the image and soul that is me

    Get on with your life by removing the things that hinder you from loving the being that resides in the skin you live in.
