Independent Vs Self-Sufficient
You may say I’m Independent
Cause I live on my own
Pay all my bills, take of my son
But this girl’s not made of stone.
I hold it down, maintain my house
But I’d rather have a home.
Unlike Independent, Self-Sufficient
Wasn’t made to be alone.
Self-Sufficient has respect
When on his words he stand tall.
Independent will not listen
Bet not say nothing at all.
I’m not the type that think I’m right
When it’s all said and done.
I want to hear a man’s perspective
Can’t see full view with just one.
An Independent woman only thinks of herself.
She sets her goals, reaches them
But won’t encourage nobody else.
A Self-Sufficient woman stays on top of her game
If he wants them to be then he has to meet
And this ensures he does the same.
My only gripe with Independent life
Is that you “only need you”
Take a look at what you’ve done
Turning a number into one
That God clearly meant for two.
We have a society of men sitting
around on the couch.
But what would you expect,
when the need for a man
In the Independent life has been put out.
My beautiful ladies you are strong
AND you can hold it down.
But that’s no need to emasculate
And rob our men on their crowns.
“He won’t do this”, “He won’t do that”
But what real chance did you give?
Picking up the slack, Never forgetting that
You are his true incentive.
Independency within itself shows your strength and your might
But that’s all defeated when all you needed
Was a good man who’ll treat you right.
You can know what you want
Not to settle for less and
reserve the right to be picky
Without skipping a beat
take care of your needs
And that is Self-Sufficiency.
Our fellas have been moved from head to tail
in this present time and day.
Ladies, please fall back
Allow our men to get on track
And again lead the way.
They’re knocking them off as if they’re nothing
Our kings’ innocent blood splatter.
It’s up to us to return their crowns.
And let them know that they matter.
