If I Offend You - Poem by Ramona Thompson

I'm not here to hold your hand
I'm not here to be your babysitter
Don't care what you think
Don't give a damn about what you want
I know who I am
What I wanna be
Ain't gonna change just to fit in with your narrow minded state of mind

I may not ever be a best seller
I may not ever be #1 in your book
Don't bother me
Not one damn bit
As long as I'm not doing the same as you
Hiding who I really am behind a mask of cold indifference
Just to fit in with so called friends who would't think twice before they stabbed me in the back

3 little words
I got just for you
If you don't like me
If you wanna stand there and talk trash
Then you know what they are
You know what I'm talking about
If I offend you

Take it and shove it my friend
Up where the sun never shines
Just like a corpse rotting in the grave
A toliet full of shit
That's all that your opinion means to me
Proud of who I am and what I'm done with my life
And if you're jealous, pissed off or just plain don't like it
If I offend you
Then baby I just don't care

You got that?
