Becareful
Andrew, I’m
coming for your job.
Keep an eye on me,
because there is
only so much you can take back promotions.
Notice me and accept me as an
equal in the office.


Cheating me out of my due is only
hurtful to you and
each person who has thought less of me.
Andrew,
please take care in what you say,
every time you think I can’t hear your
negative comments, I can.


Devoid of support I can still rise,
and I will rise with or without you on my side.
No one can hold me back
going forward I will make you see my worth.
Look at me, you wouldn’t be you without me,
everyone knows it too.
