    I do not
    feel sorry for you
    I will not
    feel sorry myself

    I am going to be
    who I am

    I will no longer
    try to understand
    ill treatment and false accusations
    the reasons are personal
    within yourself

    I rise higher but my feet
    are still planted in soil
    never lifting above any one
    always been humble
    still I always get one less applause

    just being me
    has been an triumph itself
    I’ve hiked half way to the mountain’s peak
    understand this
    I am not turning back

    Go gurl! I hear the determination in this peace.
    As the saying goes "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not."
    Be yourself and don't change for no one.

    Gr8 peace.

    Though I have no idea who you are
    I can respect the position of being
    one's self. No other way to be...
    God bless!
