Down

No Comments

I am a simple woman

from the top of my head

to the bottom of my feet

See, I am free

of all that negativity

that weighs you down

I want simple things

from the core of my soul

to the outer layers of my being

Ya know, I am seeing

no sense in agreeing

with what keeps us down

I hang with simple people

from the depths of my past

to the presence of this day

Y’all, I love feeling this way

no matter what anyone says

who really wants to stay down

Being a simple individual

from the words I speak

to the complexity in my voice

Finally, this is my choice

I can simply rejoice

I am no longer down
