Friend Or Foe

by Blackpearl

True girlfriends are there for support and encouragement
Not to sit in judgement
Yes they should tell you when you are wrong
When you are wearing something you shouldn't have put on

True girlfriends don't play petty ass competition games
Or sit in the presence of others and allow them to call you names
Yes, we are both different, but very much the same
Now with ya'll, I can't even hang
It's my low tolerance for bullshit that won't let me relax
How can I with all of these knives in my back?
I don't know where your head is at
I only tried to be friend to you
But you continue to act out of all of your ISSUES
I don't have any use for "girlfriends" like you

I am woman enough to admit
That sisterhood is so important
It allows us to share ourselves with another individual
I don't know what the hell is wrong with ya'll
I always tend to be the one not to fit
Having compassion for my sisters
Sometimes seems like unjust punishment
Some are worse than these niggas out here
From calculating, manipulating, free-loading, get over hoes
I try to stay clear

I don't need the type of shit around me
Nothing but sharks surround me
On the daily, I pray for your safety
You want to reduce me to same level as you
I don't think I'm better just different than you
I don't see why you treat people the way you do
What did I ever do to you?
To make you smile in my face 
While you get me from behind
At first I thought it was all in my mind
But I started to pay closer attention
Let's not forget to mention
That if you probably paid more attention
To your own plight
Your own life
You'd see
That I am not the enemy
What I tell you is true
Your worse enemy is YOU
