If I am

I am a nobody--

never been a somebody…

Ask anybody

But you now--

You live your life,

Pursue your work,

Make your music…

Keep your mind on

Then what?

If I am something else,

Something other than what?

If I am too much,

How can there never be enough?

If I am a lady,

Why do I love to be

A bitch?

If I am a little girl,

Why do I love to be

A whore?

If I am anything

At all to you,

Why can I not be
