I Mean That Literally

by Michaelle

Tripped over my ego today
I mean it literally..
Was walking down the street and I saw a mirror.
Slowed down to admire my reflection and I tripped...
fell flat on my ass-
that shit hurts, still got the scars to prove it.
Got my lies slapped in my face today
I mean that literally.
Still have the imprints on my face to prove it.
Got my pride stepped on today, hard!
I mean that literally, still got the pain in my foot to prove it.
Got my greed stuffed down my throat today,
I mean it literally, got the weight on my thighs to prove it,
its been a while and i'm still tryin to loose it.
Got my sexuality stole from right under me 
I mean that literally, got the mental scars to prove it.
Almost lost myself to life the other day,
I mean that shit literally.
Look at me I'm still standing and that's how I prove it!!
