    Go 'head and do ya thang, Boi!
    Don't let nobody tell ya how to SANG, Boi!
    Keep ya head up. Don't let it hang, Boi!
    Do ya thang!
    Do ya thang!

    Plant dem feet, Boi!
    Don't be nobody's toy, Boi!
    Shake off them who seek to destroy
    They're just amazed at the POTENTIAL you employ!
    And AFRAID of the GREATNESS only YOU can deploy!
    So, go 'head and do ya thang, Boi!
    Do ya thang!
    Do ya thang!

    Love your Black Queen like I love you, Boi!
    Cuz only YOU bring me JOY, Boi!
    And I gotcha BACK, Boi!
    Put cha hand in mine:
    BLACK to BLACK, Boi!
    So, go 'head, Boi!
    Do ya thang!
    Do ya thang!

    Young man, young man do your thang
    Don't let anyone tell ya you're not king
    For you were designed to truly reign
    I know what it looks like right now
    But hold your head up not down
    And learn to stand your ground
    For you are equipped a royal past
    And built to withstand and outlast...to be continued

    This made me want to throw a few words together. I like this spunky piece a lot. It was chunked full of flair and black love.
