POEM TITLE: UNTITLED

Why they hating on me, why the plotting on me.

I know I’m in a place where I ain’t supposed to be,

Why they keep hating on me

Why they keep hating on me

Why they hating on me cause I’m in my own land

Back of da class I be doing my own thing.

I called my grandma and she saying it’s a shame

Told her when I get home yeah I’m gone change.

I got to make my grandma happy and make my make smile

Get out and go to school it will make my family proud.

I don’t entertain haters or let them bring me down.

I put a smile on my face even rock me a frown,

why they hating on me man I don’t understand.

I fear no one cause I’m my own man

I was walking three steps then I ended up on the stand

They treat me like a dog get on my knees and my hands.
