    You look at me and think you know me.
    You know nothing about me.
    I am a Queen waiting to return to my King.
    I am poor but rich in spirit.
    I have been a slave.
    I have been raped.
    I have been beaten with lies.
    I have been stripped of the truth.
    I have been tormented by the cries of the lost
    Persecuted for their lack of knowledge and ignorance.
    Thrashed by your cruelity, your harsh words.
    The things that I have seen would haunt you in your sleep.
    The torture I've endured would be to much for anyone to bare.
    Yet I still stand.
    You mistake my kindness for weakness.
    You fear my strength.
    Threaten by my capacity to love.
    Frighten by my inner beauty.
    You pass judgement against me for fear of knowing who I really am.
    My judgement comes from one Higher.
    You can try to keep me inslaved.
    Try and weaken me and keep me in your chains.
    I am proud with my head held high.
    Strong and Free
