The Other Side Of You

Stephano Suggs 1996 (Monaca) – 2005 (Waynesboro, Va)

So we will only be friends
When you don't really care
Is it that you pretend
Every time you come here
You seem to be bitter and mad
You never express good emotions
With all the fun we've had
Only once in a while are you open
You seem to give out insults
More than giving out compliments
Why do you put up them blocks
Kindness and love stems from confidence
Do you have a high self esteem
If so, why do you seem low
Frustration causes me to want to scream
Love, it's hard for me to tell you no
Put your head to the clouds
I'm sorry though I must die a new
As I puff my black and mild
I see the other side of you

To my twin
