WALKING IN CONFIDENCE

WALKING IN CONFIDENCE

 

I've been talked about 
Lied on, misunderstood 
And misrepresented
I was called out of my name 
But some how I managed 
To keep my head up 

I've been used and abused 
At times confused
Rejected by the very ones
I give my last dime to
But some how I managed 
To keep my head up

My character was assassinated 
I felt humiliated 
But because I forgive them 
I manage to keep my head up 

 One day I will die 
And there will be no need to cry
And here's the reason why
From this world I would of survived
From all those missiles of lies
That had tried to stop me and block me 
From keeping my head up.
