Song on My Mind: Who Are They - Megan Rochell (Slightly adapted!)
“Who Are They? Cuz They Talk Too Much But They Don't Know Cuz They Ain't Us Who Are They? The Ones That (Play) Cuz They (Can't) Do friendship Like We Does (And They) We Ain't Gotta Waste No Time On (They) Shouldn't Even Cross Our Minds Girl (They) Don't U Know By Now That It Don't Matter What They Say Who Are They? ”
I have been called a lot of things in my time. When I was about 9 we met this little girl called Candice who was about my brother's age (4 years younger).
She was a light skinned Black girl with beautiful hair, she was sooooo cute! I dont think I'd ever heard the name before and I loved it so much I decided to make it mine. Seriously I wrote it as my middle name at every chance I got! I even had a letter from the Inland Revenue once with that name on it which was pretty funny considering....
Recently a new friend of mine called me a Party Girl. Another one called me Black Barbie which is nothing new to those who know me but it made me wonder about how I'm viewed by others. When people talk or think about me what kind of person do they envisage?
I suppose I used to be a Party Girl but I'm also pretty shy sometimes; I love playing Buzz on my bro's PS2 (havent got my pink one yet), dancing by myself in the middle of an empty room with music full blast, driving, dinner dates, writing, meeting new people....does this make me sound really sad? like someone not too serious about life? My brother and sister are two of the most intelligent people I know - in comparison I'm 'the one who's interested in Fashion'!
Some of my friends are like me and some are the complete opposite. I have good friends I speak to everyday, good friends I speak to once every few months and ex friends that will possibly always stay in my memory.
At school one of my teachers said to me when I was dealing with an insecurity issue: "Show me your friends and I'll tell you who you are."
Recently I was asked if I "got down" like one of my friends. I asked what that meant but you can probably guess. I said I dont but it doesnt stop me being friends with her. Should it? i dont know but I really love that girl and I believe for whatever reason that God wants her so Ill just keep praying for her....that is when I remember to, in between my moaning to God with my own problems :)
Love and Blessings to you all..
