    I am who I am
    I am who I am
    I am who I am

    Who am I?
    Only an original, there’s no other design like me,
    I am from the dirt, yet, I have been washed in grace and wrapped in love and protection.
    I have been fed wisdom and knowledge and I have drunk from the cup that my Father drank.

    I am the one that would curse you out in as much time as it took for me to look at you,
    I am the one that would sleep with you because you showed interest not because you cared about me.
    I am the one that was on the defense if you said or done something I didn’t like.

    That is who I was
    That is who I was
    That is who I was

    Like my brother Saul/Paul I have gotten my conversion, my transformation, my proclamation it was a long road but I heard His voice and I made a choice.
    I had done all I knew to do like my sister with the twelve issues of blood,
    I, like her, just needed to touch his hem.

    Now I can boldly say…

    I am who I am
    I am who I am
    I am who I am
    I’m an original.

    It's nice to be "a child of the king" as the song says...
    nice that you have found that connection to the Devine
    nice that you are...
    and
    you know it!
