I Can Remember When

by SistaTrudy66

I can remember

when I was one of the few friends

That you had

When no one else cared

 

I can remember

When you had to

ask relatives for money

When your man wasnít around

 

I can remember

When you use ta call me

Cause you needed someone

To tell your troubles to

 

I can remember

When you lived in the ghetto

And called on me, your sister,

to go out to clubs with you

 

But now that you live in the suburbs

You look down on your sistas and brothas

With a snobbish attitude

Because you no longer need our company

 

I can remember

when you didnít have any money

And you had to stand

in the welfare line

 

I can remember

When you were down to earth

And didnít think

You were better than your own kind
