Who Am I

I am who I am,                                                                                                          
and that’s where I stand                                                                                            
so proud to be an African woman. 
                                                                                                                                    
My color describes me,                                                                                               
and I hold great power                                                                                               
to be fearless and brave towards what I may encounter.                                          
I’m like a lion in the jungle in control of myself.                                                               
I portray strong life, strength and health.                                                                       
I rule my actions,                                                                                                   
I rule my thoughts,                                                                                                        
and I fight to give it all that I’ve got. 
                                                                                                                                            
I am who I am,                                                                                                       
and that’s where I stand                                                                                                
so proud to be an African woman. 
                                                                                                                                     
I’ve got goals and ambitions and strong motivations                                                     
to always persevere in my every motion.                                                                                     
I am an independent woman so free to give the world me.                                        
When I look at myself                                                                                                                   
I see power, I see pride and dignity.                                                                              
I see a child of God and her destiny.
