    Some folks have a lighting bug mentality.
    Always trying to light up their own behind.

    Can’t go out and get their own.
    Don’t tear someone else down from their thrown.
    Tearing down friends.

    Pulling others down.
    Relation lacking.
    Selfish character traits.
    Tons of back stabbing.

    Never encouraging others, it is a gift.
    Never given.
    Not even learned.

    Your reward is in the giving
    Of encouragement, support and concern.
    For the one that you support
    Should not leave you there.

    If you work for them, support them
    Them being a friend like they should.
    In your needs they should care.
    Turn back often to help you get there.

    That line right their is so true that it's got a sister wanting to drop a few lines

    Some folks have a lighting bug mentality
    Always trying to light up their own behind
    Hating like its their greatest talent and ability
    Oh how I wish they would expand their minds
    And stop wasting so much energy and time
    When are they going to learn that I'm on their side
    Their hate is so ludicrous that it ought be a crime
    Crab I dare you to let me out this barrel
    So that I can uplift the both of us
    Cause unlike you my dear brother
    I can light more than my own behind
    When I begin to get on my grind
    And start to really truly shine
    I am shining my light all through the hood
    So every man coming behind me
    Can follow the trail that I am blazing
    I understand my reward is in the giving
    And that a candles lose nothing when it lights another
    So my brother I dare you to let me shine
