Ignorance, holds no weight against smartness.
Pride, holds no strength against foolishness.

Walking, within your journey folks barely know the measure of a man.

Malcolm X, took a path from wrong to right that enhanced his life.
Build up structure that govern some to accomplished  goals they never thought of in life.

Build up men to see themselves than what others saw?
Took an organization and placed it upon the map at one time with power.

Its growth, stands to this day during his reign as growing because of his vision.
Still to this day, they more closely connected to his image.

Then, the awakening came and he changed his name.
His tune of vision to see various truth.

What we think?
May not be what we know?
What we know?
Might not be what we think?

The measure of a man lies in what you become.
Not in what you were?
