I want to be accepted.
So, requests are never rejected.
Everybody takes a piece/peace of my pie.
While I’m losing my piece/peace.
They say ‘peace’ ✌🏾 when the pie dwindles down to crumbs.
They say it’s better to give than receive.
Math ain’t adding up cause Life ain’t free.
I paid my tolls for the golden road.
My blessings must’ve gotten stuck on a dead-end road.
Am I being used?
Why do I choose to be abused?
Attention is a drug.
Disguised as Love.
In hindsight, I’m grateful I never overdosed.
Because eventually I learned to —
Just say NO.
