    "Curiosity indeed killed the cat, but satisfaction brought the cat back"

    i am the real me
    and thas all i'll evah be
    thas all i've evah been
    up ta now from way back when
    it don't matter what othas say
    they can't have me their own way
    That would be suicide you see
    death of the real me.......
    done by my own hand
    and still the real me would stand
    underneath the garbage heap
    smellin funky and bein cheap

    Thas how i see it and thas whats comfortable for me. Here's Skoolllllll
    i go to many compatible places and involve myself in many compatible situations and thas koollllll.

    i go to incompatible places and get involved in incompatible situations and they threaten to break my peace, but i remain me........
    i never cease

    what you see is what you get......i've been know to masquerade, i've been known to role play but still it's me. beneath the masks and the costumes it's still me up in the room.........

    That's real to me and it's all about doing what i can live with because it's truly me that i've got to live with..........

    judge me if you want, thas on you and thas a part of your real......
    jus like me you're free to do what you really know and feel.....

    walk in my shoes if you think you can
    but there aint no way
    aint no matchin DNA
    me is unique
    not just a physique
    you don't have the finger print
    nor the things with which i've been sent
    you'll fail the retina scan
    no way you can be this man
    squeeze me
    hate me
    slander me
    or brag on me
    praise me if you wanna
    i still stand
    i am.................
    not contained in my possesions nor my accomplishments
    nor my lack of such embellishments
    these are separate from me
    things i have and haven't achieved
    take them all away
    and i still be
    put more on me
    and i still be
    ME
    Thas REAL
    The way i FEEL
    Satisfaction for the cat
    i ROLL exactly just like that
    a footnote: All of my life i have been an introverted thinker type person, not easy to know by many, by design; but respected and trusted by most also by design......( this is yet my basic personality as of today)
