    They don't know
    That what they say
    Tears you into a million pieces

    They don't know
    That your life has been a constant stuggle
    From ya mothaz womb
    You have alwayz been someones prey

    They don't know
    How alone you are
    And what you go through

    They don't know
    How shallow they are
    Following after somebody else example

    They talk and talk and talk
    But they don't know
    That their azzes are showin
    All the time

    They don't know
    That I'm the strongest
    And I will survive

    They don't know
    That they're livin a lie

    They don't know
    What they're doing to me

    Feeling trapped
    I am a prisoner of their insanity

    Feeling trapped
    I feel like the prisoner's wife
    Never being free to describe the pain you went through
    Because they say their someone they're not
    Just fake *** ******
    Actin like they been around the world in eighty dayz

    Just another obstacle
    And most of them that don't know
    Are my brothaz and sistaz, ya feel?

    Unfortunately, what you say is true. But as we express ourselves poetically, we edify... and maybe a few of those who don't know, (and worse, who don't know they don't know) will read your verses, mess around and find out ...

    Teach! :heart:
