People Said

You know, people said you were all wrong for me.

That I was high class and you were ghetto.
That I was educated and you were nothing but a zero.


People assumed you were a thug with substance abuse,
They didn’t know all that you refused.

I heard them say you changed me, that I am different.

It’s true, your love made me equivalent.

I no longer lie, I no longer hide. I can defend myself, I can identify my wealth.

If only those people had what I have, they wouldn’t be hating; they wouldn’t be mad.
