    Here Lies a woman who tried to be SuperGirl

    I feel like I am writing my obiturary

    I let the world poison me and now I lie in a cocoon ready to emerge

    into what noone knows

    But one thing I do know is

    "NOBODY KNOWS YOU WHEN YOUR DOWN"

    When your up on the ride so do your friends

    But soon as you slip so do they

    Even your family can seem to look another way

    Your spirit, my spirit

    was once reaching for things noone would dare

    touch

    or

    speak

    I just wanted to know how does it feel to be on top

    I kept saying to myself

    I won't stop

    I won't stop

    I won't stop

    Now kids later, many lovers later

    and definately many haters later

    I'm still climbing to the top

    Its sad how society only knows ya when your bling, bling

    or 300 Chrysler out

    All I have is my bare brown skin and a cadillac that fits me

    But do we

    Care no because we so wrapped in ourselves

    that we can't see others

    Here Lies a woman who just wanted to get ahead

    So she worked instead of

    Hooking

    Here Lies a woman who put God as her Co-pilot

    So she gave up her friends instead of

    Worshipping the devil

    Here lies a woman who doesn't believe in abusing her body

    So she drug free instead of

    Cracked out

    Let the world know your broke, homeless, ugly, fat, and see will they come your way

    But I press on

    I stay strong

    Because my mamacitas is depending on me

    I can't let them see their mother with her head down

    and see the tears of Mary as she saw her son

    being persercuted

    I don't know that type of pain but I do know how it feels

    when you have nothing

    My nothing has added to something

    and this Something

    is Something

    Because we both want to have something

    and even tho' we don't have the MTV Cribs

    or the Five cars parked around in a orderly fashion

    or Mr. Bently carring around my Gucci Umbrella to keep the sun

    from my Botox skin

    Pleassssssssssssssse

    Why should we be in debt just to perpertrate to the world?

    All the money in the world couldn't buy happiness

    Because when the money starts to looking funny

    all your honey's and your posse

    is out like last year





    Here lies a woman that lived a life

    yes full of ups and downs

    frown vs smiles

    Love, cried, lied, cheat whatever my little heart desired I've done

    But one thing I can say my life is what you make it

    I made it

    I made it

    I made it

    I saw light at the tunnel

    Run with me

    Run with me

    Come with me

    as we embrace this warming feeling

    as we come to the conclusion

    That when you fall remember God has your back

    But the world turns it

    Back

    "When nobody knows you when your down"

    When your world comes tunbling down, it is then you know whom your friends are, and God is always right there, to help you stand. So true, so true poetess.

    They surely do know you when you're down and out ...
    It's at those times when they know you ...from afar.

    Heartfelt, real and very inspiring piece sis Nevar. Though the world is full of people it seems we live in a crowded loneliness especially when you're down.
    Peace & Blessings
