I can’t have you always giving me attitude
When all I have ever done is give you gratitude
I pour it all to you with every letter
And yet you never make me feel better
There’s no point in me writing all these poems
If all you do is cause me problems
Should I hide everything that I feel
That’s probably the best way to heal
Never have I been backed into a corner
Yet my heart won’t let me forget her.
Disappointment is something I don’t wanna embrace
But losing you is something I cannot face.
I need someone that won’t give me attitude
How else do you need me to show you gratitude
I won’t get on my knees, not gonna beg
I would rather shoot myself, lose a leg
Controlling my feelings, that’s what I lack
All I ever get from is talking smack
I need to quit flaunting my devotion
There’s no point to showing you my true emotion
All you cause is for me to break down
Taking me on a wild ride town through town
Gotta stick to my roots before I drown
I’m a Latino. Loud. Proud. And Brown.
Yes we have a little problem with attitude
Especially when all we do is give our gratitude
I don’t care about money, all this cash
All I ask is to not be treated like trash
I want to give you my body. Soul. and heart.
Yet you keep, slowly, tearing me apart.
Love made me blind to your deception
I lost myself, I wasn’t paying attention
There is so much of me I have to discover
I will not allow hate to take over
Love is for my body. For my inner being
Time to open my eyes look what I’m really seeing.
It’s time for me to give the attitude
But I can’t do it, I ain’t a cruel dude
It’s complicated for me -so no
Even when I know what I should do
My Heart is filled with love, not hate
I will stop leaving things up to fate
There’s no way that I’ll always be nice
Treat me with respect or pay the price
I won’t always be the best man
But…I will be the best that I can
I will rise always try to stay above
I will always be filled with a lot of love
Love for those that show me gratitude
Not to those that continue to give me attitude.
