It's hard to be yourself in this world sometimes, in fact a lot of us change personalities depending on the situation.

Some say
God and Jesus are the same
either way holy people
bless his name
Me myself and I are all one
minus either I might be none

I figured the good side of me
and simply set him free
but my mean tough side
didn't want to give up the ride
I couldn't afford his trip
or the stupid that might slip

My good positive side is
always smiling
this is the side others
be profiling
but I am not what all
others see
certain fractions of me
I'll never hardly let free

However at times they do escape
out comes the big gorilla or ape
tamed and ready
to rock steady
Away goes the smile
but only for awhile

Long enough to tcb
