I wish

You think you are being clever

you think you're funny

i mean i would too if i had that paycheck

that lack of money

 

I guess life puts us in these situations to test us

make sure that we were able to handle worse in the future

we need to learn respect

i get that

but that doesnt give you the right to put me down

call me stupid, call me a slut in private

 

your threats to keep me quiet may work in school but on here i can be myself

i can say what i feel, say how horrible you were to me

just know that those things hold on your legacy

when you are remembered it will be out of spite

why would you want that?

 

why?
