I Am What I Am Because Of You - Poem by Sherice Malcolm

Look at my face
Do I look like I care?
Whatever you think of me
U really expect me to care?
Why should I worry about what you think I am?
When everything I am is because of you.

I hate everything...
Coz u never taught me how to love
I talk this way...
Coz this is how u talk to me
I walk the way I do...
Coz u never showed me how
I dress like I do...
Coz I dont like what u choose
I eat what I eat...
Coz that’s what u gave me to eat
I think this way...
Coz it’s how u think too

Don’t say u don’t like me
Or that u don’t admire me
Coz everything I am is because of you
All the positive the negative and the in between
It’s all because of you
Why I am me

Love me or hate me
Whatever you feel
I am how I am
Coz thats how u treated me

Friends and family
Dont be quick to judge me
I am who I am
Coz of the way you treated me
