We Are These People 2



Some people are angels, some people are real
Some people are demons, some act like a heel

Some people have street smarts, some people are dumb
Some people excite you, some make you feel numb

Some people forgive you, some hold to a grudge
Some people are yielding, some will never budge

Some people are healers, some people cause pain
Some people extent life, some shorten the lane

Some people are funny, some people are fun
Some people have humor,some people have none

Since we are these people, since we have these traits
Since we make the choices, choose what truly rates
