You wanna know what scares people? Success. When you don’t make moves and you don’t climb up the ladder, everybody loves you because you’re not competition.
They don’t see the tears I cry, the fears I hide. Tend to keep my cares inside, it’s merely pride.
Respect your haters, they’re the only ones who think you’re better than them.
True confidence leaves no room for jealousy. When you know you are great, you have no need to hate.
Shoutout to my haters, sorry that you couldn’t phase me.
You don’t have to feel the need to put somebody down to make yourself feel better.
Take me or leave me I’ll never be perfect… believe me, I’m worth it.
People will love and support you when it’s beneficial.
You gotta be a beast, that’s the only way they’ll respect you.
Call me cursed or just call me blessed. If you can’t handle my worst you ain’t getting my best.
There’s nothing more beautiful than a smile that has struggled through tears.
My tears have dried and I know that no weapon formed against me will prosper.
Life is a prize, but to live doesn’t mean you’re alive.
Everything I’ve been through could’ve killed me. That’s why it really ain’t nothing you could tell me.
If I wasn’t winning, you wouldn’t care.
I am not a word, I am not a line, I am not a girl that can ever be defined.
