There were moments
Moments when I allowed people's opinions to define me
Moments when somebody's mean words towards me
Made me doubt myself.
I would falter
For they would have said I was inadequate.
I would move around in a daze
Like a husk of a being
Apologizing for things I would not have done
Doing penance for sins I did not commit
Doing time for crimes I had nothing to do with.
He said I was a nut case at one time
And it riled me up!
He said I was insure another time
And I went ballistic!
Saying spiteful words
Goading me to react
So he would call me a nut case again.
Now as I sit and look back
I realize that it ain't me who had a problem
But he who spewed out the mean words.
To feed his own ego,
Making others feel insecure
To compensate for his own low self esteem.
I ain't all those 'things' you said I was,
Funny thing is you were actually defining yourself there
With those words you thought were meant for me.
I ain't mad at you no more
Cause you are pointing at me with one finger
But the remaining four are pointing right back at you,
Do the math!!
