i can take it--

I can take it
Even If I must fake it
I can take it
Even if I am socially naked
I can take it
Even if I don't get to be famous
I can take it
Even if I hear I love u like u don't mean it
I can take it
Even if the system rules on the plaintiff
I can take it
Even if I'm losing my emotional status
I can take it
Even if I must brave it
I can take it
Even if food ain't given n my stomach remains vacant
I can take it
Even if I don't rob or steal for a  roach infested couch or building stripped to the brick naked
I can take it
Even if I hide it from the Mrs that that happens
N I lie so as to not make her cry n she gets pissed becuz of it
I can take it
Even if everyday I'm alone looking for msgs to come but won't
I can take it
Even if these same clothes I wear I marinate in them til my skin is imprinted
I can take it
Even if old haunts taunt n run rapid over my brain getting comfortable making hammocks
I can take it
Even if I must constantly prove my worth to myself to over turn this feeling of being cursed at birth n show 
exactly how the lord work his works by making an example outa this unworthy piece of dirt 
I can take it
Even if I must rip my flesh off with every breath n talk to parents about being adults N vault their feelings of 
good times lost
I can take it
Even if I was hit with a brick of slander every minute n pricked with 1000needles of venomous blood from 
hypocrites
I can take it
Even if I don't make it
I can take it
Even if it takes my last breath to proclaim it 
I can take it
Even if I don't become famous 
I can take it
Even if ......I can take it ......keep moving on ppl.......Peace
