That’s not going to be ME!!!
Sadness, anger, stress and pain
things use to be great but they’re just not the same
people comin’ up to me & ask me how I'm doin’& I say fine
knowing deep, deep inside that I'm lying
the strength to go on the will to push back
comes from the feeling I fell when I think of the fact
that she has 4 kids and no collage degree
I look at her everyday and say that’s not gonna be me
I'm gonna go somewhere... make something out of my life
I refuse, I refuse to live this kind of life over
Over and over I think of the fact
how teens get pushed and never push back
they drop out, get pregnant, or receive an S.T.D.
and I say to myself that’s not gonna be me
When I made the decision to live my life
I said I'm not going to do it unless I do it right
I made the choice & no one is gonna stand in my way
not you, not them, not even my Mama okay
now I know that you think that this is to deep to be comin from me
a girl from Ranson Middle who is just 13
But I'm trying to tell you I’ve seen these things
girls getting pregnant before the age of 16
messing up their life when they are suppose to be
living the good life by living their dreams
teens dropping out because they feel they have no destiny
and I’m here to tell you this is not just for me
it’s for you, you, and you... you see
but don’t get me wrong
there are those who exceed their goals
who go to collage and have a nice big bank role
who have the knowledge to back up what they say
and you know what that is going to be me one day
and I’m here to tell you that you can do it too
ladies don’t get caught up and let some dude
take away something that belongs to you
keep you mind on your goal and you goal on your mind
knowing that it will all happen in gods due time.
