Am dark and obvious

Am dark and obvious I take love to every place I go I have the blood of my ancestors Their ways still flow in my system I never intended no violence I love peace I don't need no isolation Am an individualist I don't judge else it necessary So please when you see me Around your neighborhood Don't judge me For who I am Cos yes I surly know that Am dark and obvious Am dark and obvious I live for peace And I go with love I have been travelling Around the world outside Africa I have see too many Reaction about my personality The looks the words the doubts The interaction the miscommunication The hatred the care the isolation The question the attitudes The help the disappointment The rejections the acceptance The smiles the stabs The racism the love The truth the lies All because of who I am Of curse yes Am dark and obvious Am dark and obvious The earth is my planet I am a child of the universe Am not different from every Human beings Am not a problem cos of complexity Am not a war cos am dark Am not a thief cos am an African Am a universal product I was not here on earth by accident So I don't need no tag to my identity I don't need no problems So when ever you see my kind Out there in your street Be nice be good Cos am not different from you only because Am dark and obvious Am dark and obvious Dedication to all of my kinds Be proud of who you are No matter what Be strong never give in Alot have died cos They are dark and obvious Alot of us have been misinterpreted Wrongly just because We are dark and obvious I say to you all Africans Be proud of who you are You are lucky to be different The prove is why We are dark and obvious Remember take love with you Everywere you go Show the world the light In our dark skin colours Prove to no one but yourself Who you are They will see you at last I am proud of who I be The blood of my ancestors Still flow in my veins It is so clear No wonder why till now Am dark and obvious
