Decided to make it simple and play with rhymes…Enjoy the read and share…
Look you in the eye…Try to get a connection….
Point yourself in the chest…and ask this question
WHO AM I
The friends I keep…
Are they the kind of people I really want to be with
Or am I just trying to be part of a clique?
A group of people I’m always trying to impress…
With money, fancy things and the way I dress
Must my bag be Prada and my dress Jimmy Choo’s?
You’d like to be my friend ‘cos I’m wearing Gucci shoes?
So what? I spent my summer in the village not New York or France
Now you’ve sized me up…with one outward glance
I can’t be your ‘friend’ anymore
Just because I can’t afford to shop in the same store…
Dude you’re telling me…that our friendship is over
Because I don’t drive a Mercedes or cruise a Range Rover
You changed your phone number and deleted my pin
We can’t be buddies… you say I don’t fit in
Because I can’t afford drinks at the Hilton…
You act like your hair is your entire existence…
Well good luck my dear…men can’t tell the difference!
You told me you need me…that no man is an island
But all that changed since you moved to the Island
I won’t break my bank just to live in a fancy home
Life is in stages…remember what they say about Rome?
I don’t shop in Dubai or take trips to Spain
We can’t hangout because I don’t drink champagne?
Until you realise…there’s more to life than the things you own
No matter your age…you haven’t yet grown
Life is not a race…neither is it a movie
Love me for who I am…or be prepared to lose me
Life is like chess…there’s a king and there’s a pawn
Don’t envy the grass that grows on the other man’s lawn
Love yourself…and the person you are
That’s the only way you can truly go far
For indeed…the road to success
Begins with one thing…and that’s loving yourself…
WHO AM I?
