Dec 2016
They say it takes a man or a village to teach manhood if someone's willing
I was the child begs to differ, be the devil to the advocate
Having never had it
I see it backwards
Always saw it, I was shown more than raised
Is this not our America
Opportunities take a proof of identity to claim
Unsure of my legacy
I thought nothing to ****** the past
And change my last name
Better built weight connected to Proverbial chains
Hide to seek a higher place
This was never a game
Potential lends its beauty to piracy
Meaning I reach for my enlightenment only to find it hides behind me
Stop hiding and show you're face
