I used to Ruff Ride, thinking I was eve
Erykah and Lauryn singing that we all black queens
Mama say the boys just looking for that thing
Deaf to the message just as the pendulum swings
Time is running out, to climb up social rungs
The latter, ladder has way to many people strung
Socializing just for answers on the test
I want to kick back and chill in comfort like the rest
I’m questioning is my hair done right, do my pants fit tight
Is my body for forevers or just one nights
I never smiled or grinned
Wasn’t with petty clique’ing up, fitting in
Never someone that I can’t be
Superficial validation don’t excite me
Tribing on the quest for the inner hidden best love
Ready or not, here I come, seeking self love
