My Dignity

They haunted me down crucify me talk about me but they never took my
dignity away from me
They turned on me they disrespected me they tried to bring me down but
they never took my dignity away from me
They tried to say negative things to hurt me they tried to bring me down
like the rest of them but they failed because they never took my dignity
away from me
They mocked me call me names told me what I was not going to do they
never supported me in what ever I did
I was always alone but it didn’t hurt me because they never took my
dignity away from me
They took advantage of me misusing me thinking that I didn’t notice they
disown me like they didn't know me
   
They segregated their selves away from me like we weren’t family but it
didn’t faze me because they never took my dignity away from me
They always hated to see me succeed walking in the light of God and
holiness they wanted to see me walk in darkness sinning among the people
but it didn’t end up that way because they never took my dignity away
from me
They put whips on my back like they did Jesus nail me with insulting
words that would make you give up but I never quit I kept my head up
high
Because I knew through it all God was still on my side helping me fight
through my trails and tribulations
Even though as I got older and the road got tougher
I still smile because they can’t ever take my dignity away from me
