    Come to the point of no return
    a new generation of children
    beset with growing pains
    wonder aloud whether
    it is beautiful to be
    who they are,
    or not.

    The fact is...
    you were born beautiful
    intact wherever you are at

    Exact,
    whomever
    you choose to be
    made in the image of God

    You favor the Most High
    in ways beyond your
    wildest dreams

    Why it is
    you don't know this
    is beyond me brown child

    Because
    you are not a "g"
    as in what a gangster be
    but rather a person of color
    who can become anything you choose

    He or she
    designed to be
    evidence of Divinity

    Down by Law ~
