Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
Take it or Leave it
I made the choice to be me...
the person you see before you...
im the one who keeps you guessing.
I made the decision to speak my mind...
to never let anyone dictate my feelings inside.
I spent my life trying to make you happy and
still deep down inside...
all I did was kill the very being that I needed to be!
You can take me or leave me
because I am who I am!
The words I speak are real
and the pain of my life is
something that you can never heal.
The choice is urs...
you can include me in ur life
or you can exclude the very woman
who you desperately want by your side!
Im tired of living for everyone but me
so its urs choice....
TAKE ME OR LEAVE ME!
Im at this point in my life where I feel the need
to be happy, and I don't care who doesn't understand
my happiness, because its MINE! I just want to be able to be me!
That's all I want! Im living life for me and my son now
so don't get mad when "I'M NOT WHO U EXPECT ME TO BE"
