    u don't understand me
    but yet in still u say u know me
    like da bakc of your hand...don't u see
    that even though u've KNOWN me 4 yrs.
    there are still thangs u fail 2 realize.
    like those drops of water falling from my eyes
    are called tears.

    u want 2 analyze
    when all u have 2 do is listen..
    i'm not a commercial...i don't advertise
    my thoughts or feelings on my sleeve.
    u have 2 use ur mind..think 2 figure me out
    if u don't want 2 take da tyme..then take da door and leave.

    People judge thangs they don't understand.
    u know but u don't understand cuz u've judged me
    i have yet 2 judge u, but u say my head is da one in da sand.
    u judge on what u know and see..not what u've experienced.
    i don't judge cuz i understand pain and happiness.
    u don't get it ...u don't even try..u're not even serious..
    u're ashamed 2 admit that mayb..just mayb..u're prejudice..

    i'm understanding somethin' now..
    U, passersby, strangers, even friends
    da WORLD don't want 2 understand me
    don't want 2 understand da black gurls plight
    da black gurls struggle...or y i have 2 fight
    more than those who're white..
    u're just content with thinking u know me
    and hears a news flash..
    everyone knows me...but FEW understand me..

    yes,
    i know you.
    but after all the things,
    i do.
    i find myself,
    in a big hole.
    where inside,
    my only friend is mold.
    people say a girl,
    is suppose to sleep with a man.
    but yet and still i don't understand.
    why must we sleep,
    at such an early age.
    i'm only 16,
    and i'm on life's stage.
    i know where you are,
    and where you wish to be.
    few understand,
    but it's okay because i understand me.........(DEEP)
