Why They Hate You And Don't Know You


Referring to the judgemental...
I'd question myself...
How could people hate people they have never met?
How could people quote me on things I never said?
How are you unloyal if they'd never gave a chance?
How are people for you if they keep you out their plans?
That's confusing...
We've never shared a word in my life
Somewhere along the line...
What you heard wasn't right
You don't even know me
So how could they judge?
Have we ever spoken?
Not even once...
God knows my heart
I stay to myself
I started out with nothing and I came up the steps
You can talk about me
I'll pray for your health
Everyone around me started changing and left
Hear my message...
I'm the person everyone rejected
I'm the last person everybody was expecting
But I started rising...
They ain't understand it
Hateful criticism doesn't hurt unless you let it
I'm protected
God placed me under His wing
And I avoid the demons and the drama they bring
I'm all about the peace
So the trouble can leave
I'd never hate the blessings that another receives
Is it crazy?
Oh they never met me but they hate me
Think for yourself
Others are opinionated
I'm a good person and I try to behave
A future for the kids is why I strive to be great
Now I would like to say
I love you people who love me
Get to know me first for you people who judge me

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
