I was taught to hold my head high.
I was taught to be strong.
I was taught to speak up,
Or not to be scared of anyone.
I taught to be confident,
And not care about the negative people say about me.
What if the negative is coming from you?
Why all of a sudden teach so differently?
I was taught to be open-minded.
Never to judge others, just leave them alone.
Now why is it so difficult to open your mind,
To someone so uniquely precious at home?
I was taught to want the word of the lord,
And everybody tries to give their all.
Mom what happened?
Why does it hurt a little when you catch me when I fall?
Is it because I was taught,
To love you unconditionally?
Short, broke, beautifully plumped, ma anything.
Why canâ€™t you just do the same for me?
I was taught to never stay down,
Because youâ€™d never get up to win.
Am I such a bad person,
Because in a different way I sin?
Ma, please help me.
Iâ€™m so down and I donâ€™t see how I can stand.
You taught me before.
Please, teach me how to get up again.
