    Validation... of my life’s situations
    seem so farfetched
    As i stand extended,
    arms outstretched
    Reaching for other’s standards and expectations
    Of who i should be…
    Whether it’s mama,
    daddy,
    sistah,
    brotha,
    lover,
    otha…
    Can’t take on their stuff
    And spend the rest of my life carrying such a load

    Within me, i am told lies my validity
    Though, i’ve never looked before
    i must look now
    To shed misconceptions,
    inadequacies
    & falsehood…

    i choose this road to myself
    Freeing my being from anything
    That keeps me from being me…

    peace

    As you manage the perceptions of others, you teach-
