I'm just me!

In life we all must go through something.
An what we endure determines who we are & will be.
I've made so many mistakes.
But, there are no mistakes if I learned & took heed.

Who am I? I've question this a million times!
Seeking the truth for my purpose...knowing I'm not worthless...like the sun I must shine!

Doubt can cause irrational & regrettable decisions.
Like driving in the rain & the dew can fog your vision.

Who am I?...Who am I?

I'm the individual that's going to make something out of nothing!
A individual that embraces challenge, while the others be running! 

Who am I?...Who am I?

I'm a brother that understands: no don't mean no, it just mean not right now!
An in order to get the right thing, you have to do the right thing: 
Because tomorrow starts now!

I love my people because in essence I love me!
An the 1st rule of loving me? Is loving those that look like me!

Full lips, a million shades, & coarse hair.
Black Kings & Queens: call us Africa because Kunta Kinte came from there!

Who am I?...Who am I?
I'm just me!
