about

Song made for an assignment for school. Was required to speak on how I perceive myself and how others perceive me in light of my sex, race, religion.

lyrics

[Hook]
Momma always told me, that you can be anything you wanna be
Momma always told me, that you can be anything anything

So Ima be! Doctor, president
Born sinner, show em that we heaven sent
Engineer, pilot, the world is mine see the life that I picked

[Verse 1]
A Young mailman, papa said I got to deliver, like I'm an arrow, shot from his quiver

Always missed the mark, Like I never poked a bulls eye
perfect people sling mud by the pool side

But they say
life's a beach and its short
Well in short I exhort, as I sink in the quick sand

I'm drowning in my consciousness
Momma said don't sleep and catch z's on your confidence, thinking I'm incompetent

Oceans often trouble me but I'm in an arc of the covenant, comforted by rainbows
With the most high, still fly in my plain clothes, the wind shifts,but I'm feather weighted, get it straight

I'm a Christian, true religion caring for these widows and orphans, like I'm baby sitting

Doing all that's written, don't care if we fit in
Flowing in hopes that you listen

[Hook]
Haters always told me, that you can't get anywhere you wanna be x2
So they said to me, Rapper, Gonna fail, monopolize your potential or go to jail, drug dealer, screw up, pre judged just wishing that they knew us

[Verse 2]
Some people see me cool because I'm Dark skinned
Others look at me, and judge like my life's sin
Ladies tuck their purses when I'm on the block
Warming cars are always locked
always the prime subject like I call the shots
On the same planet, but it's like they can't see it right
Sucked in a vacuum of their own world, can't see the light

Instead of colour being equal, the true lens of the spectrum,
Black hearts are propagated through the media

You suffer from bulimia
Eating the word that is scripted,
I'm the hypocrite, they calling me the bigot

Backflipping like a gymnast,
Church and state is more than a business, good like a citrus

Dishing out healing, but they prefer a sickness
Im the one who condemns when I say we need forgiveness dang

Say my truth is relative, then tell me who's the witness

[Hook]
Whatever people tell me, I can be anything I wanna be x2
So Ima be! Doctor, president
Born sinner, show em that we heaven sent
Engineer, pilot, the world is mine see the life that I picked
