VANITY

Updated: Nov 6, 2022


Eye full of fashion

Is that all your passion

What about your peeps in the hood


Talkin’ bout the grand events you attended

When shattered hearts need to be mended

Thought when you escaped the grind you understood


Givin’ produces prosperity

Neglect promotes barbarity

But you say “Being me is hard to be.”

Girl, please!


How you livin’ ain’t boss

Flirtin’ for dollars

Makes me wanna holla

You’re not living the truth you’re lost


Your vanity created your insanity

It’s destructive and selfish

I know you're hot…your fly You just can’t help it


We are in recession

But you’re all about obsession

Your fake, your fowl no matter what it cost


Professionally you’re seductive

You’re lazy bones ne’er productive

When the John’s get through…your tossed

You’re being taken advantage of

With those baller’s and thugs

They will leave you high and dry on the streets


But you don’t care Nor are you aware

Because with your egotism

Your game is concrete

Vanity, fear, desire, competition-- all such distortions within our own egos. Are light shine most when we look out for others and let go of self.👄

So I have this one friend whom I would call pretty, I wish she felt that I was her friend.. She was sooo full of herself and even though its love/hate. I love her as a sister but I cannot stand her as a human being. She is so full of herself, and put no ones needs above hers.

Sorry, she's not worth your time. I have had friends who are only your friend when you call or you put effort into the friendship; again, it's not worth the time catering to those type people.
