Track War - Poem by Shilesha Johnson

I can’t wait for season to start
So that I can work hard
And have a lot of mouths dropp
To all the people that compare me
And all the people that think I can’t do it
To all the people that think that they are “so much better”
I have news for you…. You’re not
I’m not a cocky person at all
But when you question and try to down me like I suck
It’s a problem
The only reason why you have time to talk about me and what I can or can’t do
Is because you know I can beat you
And you’re not handling your own business and minding your own
But that’s okay
Because while you’re talking and trying to TELL everyone that your better
I’m a be SHOWING everyone that I’m better
You act like I ain’t ever come close to beating you
You have two things over me and that’s stride and height
I don’t talk my junk and I don’t fight
I settle track beef on the field
So I see you there and when I beat you
I’m a be like BAM yea Lauren Williams
You compared me to her trying to make it as an insult
But I took it as a compliment
She made it to the Olympics
And had many things to accomplish
And that’s EXACTLY where I want to be
You can’t get inside my head
That’s the old me
The new me is ready
To take on any challenge
To do what it takes
And I’m a beat you someday
And as bad as I want to
I won’t even laugh in your face
I’ll jus smile and say good job
And then continue to do my thing
Because I’m better then that
To me (laughs)
You don’t mean anything
