Saved

Brought up

Feeling worthless, ugly ducklin

Some might say I’m crazy

Take it up with god my creator

That made me, I keep it in

The Church on the daily, One day

That word might save me.

I’ve been actin up lately. Can’t

Get my thoughts through.

Tossing and turning in my bed

All night trying to put up a

Really bad fight. People

Always judging me for who I

Am, well my name’s Jazmyne

Jolley, and that’s who I am

And If you don’t like it I don’t

Give a damn. Haters are my

Motivators, and I’m so

Sophisticated. My mom raised me

To be creative.
