    I always knew I was gonna be different
    In this world, being black not as black
    As some, and not as light as others,
    but still the same called un-forgotten names.

    I always knew the world would play me a
    different hand, didn’t grow up on the beach,
    collect sea shells or dig my toes in the sand
    didn’t have a father around to call the man.

    I always knew things would be different for me,
    didn’t know I would be raped, beat, abused and see
    people hanging from tree’s, didn’t know my name would
    be changed and I would be called *****, colored,
    kicked and shackled in chains.

    I always knew I would have to try harder then others
    learn more; speak less change the way I acted,
    the way I dressed , but what difference has it
    ever made “I’m still black cant ever change that.

    Nor would I want to…
