I’m tired of defending myself, everybody telling me what I’m doing from what I’m not
I thought this was my life, last time I checked I knew what I’ve done and what I’ve not
My life has become something like a best seller but not a lot really know the plot
But its seems like I’m targeted more than others and they keep hitting the same wrong spot
*****Isn’t this how most of us feel sometimes? *****
Funny thing is, in life you cannot always tell if someone has changed, if you’re not around everyday
So blame me if I’m wrong but do we honestly think that after 30 years a person stays the same way?
Can we conclude that a person actions remain the same, of years past in what they now portray?
I highly doubt it because that’s like telling me that everybody lives their lives in a constant replay
People do change you know, some for the better and some for the worst
Some become successful and for whatever reason some get driven by a hearse
Life is not like a choir, trust me, you don’t have time to rehearse
But we are given opportunities, to make a mark, like a song with more than one verse
Who are we to judge how someone lives their life, even if it’s not how we live ours
People need to be more concerned about theirs and pay way less attention to yours
If we focused our time on more important things for ourselves instead of wasting hours
Who knows how great we could soar, maybe, probably higher than the old twin towers
Live your life for you because you can only represent yourself and control your actions
Don’t let what other people say and do affect you and cause any distractions
If and only if someone’s behavior affects you due to constant interactions
Then make a change, take a different route, to side step them and move toward self-satisfaction
