A Lady

-It's hard to honor a person
who thinks I have no morals
-Who thinks lust pumps through my veins
and that I can't even be loyal
-Someone who shelters me
because the world is way too currupt
-But I need my independance
because without it, life would be rough
-I wanted to be viewed as a woman
and treated like a lady
-I can't stand when you say
you think I want to have his baby
-If you didn't know by now
I still have my innocents
-My body is as pure as a new born child
they way you think doesn't make any since
-I can't go places with friends
or even call them on the phone
-It may seem silly to ask this question
but what did I do wrong?
-Does you mind go back to the weekend
I hung out with that dude?
-Aint nothing even go down
if you really wanted the truth
-He kissed me, I kissed him
and it was a alittle huggin and squeezin'
-But I held my own as long as I could
because I walk with a reason
-So when you go around telling your friends
you need to keep an eye on me
-Try to look through my eyes and feel what I feel
because my heart does have a dream
-So I'm not the "slut" anymore
who's going to have multiple kids
-If I could take back what happened that night
trust me! it would have been did
-I'm not that "ho" anymore
Who's going to be on section eight
-It would be nice if my own mama
thought my life could be a little great
-I'm not a "child" anymore
you have to move aside and help me grow
-I am becoming a young lady! Yes, a young lady
Its unbelievable, I know
-I don't need a promise ring
or any type of promise charm
-Just know that I am with God
and I trust in Him with all of my heart
-I don't want to be your burden
and i refuse to be a typical teen
-I want to be a lady
And i swear I'll be the best one you've even seen!
