In The Spotlight

I'm not famous nor do I have a lot of clout.
I'm not a flashy person that's not what I am about.
I don't have a fancy car nor do I live in a house.
Yet my name is always in everyones mouth.
I've moved on with my life and tried to put the past behind me.
Here comes the spotlight pointed directly at me.
I stay the same because I can only be me.
I surround myself with positive people only.
In the spotlight here it comes again.
My name slandered by people who I thought were my friends.
I keep my negative thoughts in the back of my mind.
Yet once again the spotlight continue to shine.
I wonder why years passed and people continue to hate.
I'm loving every minute of it that makes me feel great.
I see that my name is the topic of your conversation.
Instead of hating on me determine your motivation.
In the spotlight is where I want to be.
In the end I could only be me.
