Dear father....why should I

Dear father why should i respect u
because u added my name on ur back as a new tattoo
or because u screwed my mama
and now u want me 2 be u

why should i like ur girl
she dont like me
she want it 2 be u and her
4get about me

why should i speak 2 her when i enter my home
its my house she should speak dats where i belong
why should i except the wrong
who cares if the truth takes to long

why should i smile in her face
how about when she puts her hands on me i put her back in place
why should i bite my tounge
and when u yell at me make her feel like she's won

why should I live this chicks life
she's not my mom or ur wife
why should i put down the knife
she took away my love why not take her life

why should I be like u
u live in the same place that i do
why should i not respect this world
it brought me a gift and yes she is the sweetest girl

why shouldn't I be me
its da only person I know how to be

why should I listen 2 u
is it because u don't want me 2 be better than u

guess wat pops...........I love u 2

Msg: This is truely not personal but a friend had a problem and the best way to let it go is to write about 'em
