I’ve gotten used to living behind mirrors and smoke screens, it’s easier to portray an image for the world to see. When I’m alone I am haunted by my truth. A girl who entered this world in a jail cell. A girl who was served struggle with a side of pain on a broken platter. A girl who was thrown into a tank with sharks deep in a world whose motto is to eat or be eaten. I can still see the dirt underneath my nails; I’ve fought too hard to get where I am and I don’t plan on looking back. However, there’s always someone waiting to knock me down because they don’t think I deserve it. Well I say to hell with them. I’ve put in too much to allow anyone to drag me down. So either you’re riding with me or against me…
