Some Days I can’t stand to look in the mirror 

Trying’ daily to find relief through written scripture 

Even though the melanin in my skin tells me I’m built to win 

This battle within and what about where the desires truly lie or could they lies ingested on the inside be a personification of self hate injected by the media? 

That today, yeah today – is a good day 

Only if it’s brought to you by Coca-Cola 

Seem to me 

Everything’s a marketing scheme 

Maybe even me 

I’m just hoping you buy in  

Into this intelligent introvert 

A heaven sent martyr 

With the ability to people please 

Or is that only when the people are pleasing to me 

Welcome to my world 

Where imperfections are systematically picked at for the purpose of identifying the why 

The why we stop pushing for 

The why we stop fighting for 

The why we on this earth for 

To take up space?? 

I doubt that’s it 

Remember Jim Crow and segregation 

Remember the back of the bus 

Remember civil and human rights 




I guess we forgot 

Or got cool with what we got 

Or was it a given to pacify the times, not realizing we barely scrapin’ by 

As for me 

Enough is enough 

I refuse to sit down or stay down 

I understand that generations to follow after  me. We got enough robots and workers  

So I’m the sacrifice 

Cause I want my babies proud of me 

So their babies proud of them 

But understand this 

The armor of the Most High upon his son, so through my walk 

This life light will be what my children mirror 

And in their reflection, the hate I proclaim earlier will be released 

So I guess this is a mirror no one sees 

The tormented soul of a man within a man 

Breaking foundation for the future man to present himself and you could say he’s been  

Here the whole time 

Right here in the heart and mind’s eye 

Waiting for the other man to step aside 

Blessings from the Most High
