    Rootz
    Black pride
    African rootz
    Representin my culture til i die
    Never Shall i lie about where my african roots reside
    Why?
    Because i have black pride
    I'm proud of where I came from,where I've been, where I've gone,and where i'm goin
    Pressin on
    Forever standin strong, keepin on
    Never showin shame of where my ancestors came
    And since we bein real about this let me say it plain
    I am a strong blk women of color
    Representin my sisters & brothas of all races & colorz
    For we are like no other
    We are the colors of the desert sands,colors of the earth & the lands
    And I stand for all tall for all to see
    For i have pride in my culture and i have pride in me
    And My brothaz & sister get on up & smile with me
    For we shall reign for aa everlasting eternity
    For you see the colors of this world are made of you & me​
