On the D.L.

When did you first love yourself?
                  Or did you know how?

Was it when that brutha 
hurt you,
      Shamed you,
               Disrespected y ou....
                                       Lied to you?

Shit, you still didn't know.

That brutha was a hoe, screwed around on 
what he called the down low.

So you still don't know....
        I can tell you.

When the doctor called you in,
asking "who is your next of kin.
Yo ass was drunk, waiting on your
results to come in.

Now you want to love yourself,
                      Be by yourself
                    Angry at yourself.....

Girl let it GO!
  Now you know.
Watch out for those Down Lows.

You are now empowered
to love yourself more
Close all the drama
leave all expectations at the door.

It's about you,
It's knowing the truth
It's about all the 
positive energy you produce.

What is important is to trust and love you.

One Love
