As you continue to wake up and throw your face on- put on a show for friends, family, and yourself- please understand your slip has been shown- and your cover has been blown- the lie you hide-for some reason you feel the truth I can’t see- but your pain runs deeper than you wanting to be me- study my life and pretend my struggle is yours- honey we have been cut from a different cloth since the day we were born!- fake smiles, hey how you doing, and good-bye’s – what you don’t understand is I know confusion sits behind your eyes – how does she do it? – how can she pop back like the wind?- how can she not be phased when people are coming at her and in her camp her biggest enemy may be within? – don’t worry about how I face my fears, my struggle, and my enemies all at the same time – I can tell you like I tell the rest-for my secret get in line! – it takes somebody who is selfless not selfish – it takes a little bit of dirt, sunshine, rain, and pain and a splash of a bad bitch – you see as you study me and go to bed and pray to be me- just know this one thing when you pray at night HE can’t hear you because your face doesn’t resemble me- as you continue to struggle with the insecurities you hold within- I will take my bumps and bruises because before long my pain is the reason why you will look lost while I win- I love it when someone hopes, laughs, wishes, and prays for my demise- because my success will be greater- and never think that behind your shades- I still can’t see the envy that you hold so deep within….
