    Who am i supposed to be?
    What exactly do you want to see?
    A prototype of your thoughts?
    No my brotha,no way my sista...
    Will i let you equate me with your stagnant thoughts,
    in those ignat minds

    Like a black butterfly i'm here to fly..
    Fly wherever the course of the wind drifts me
    Like a black rose i stand out,i abandon my thorns
    Yet without the fortification i still survive...
    I'm on my journey to my higher-self
    And as back-breaking as this voyage has been,
    i can't hide behind your face and believe i'm playing my role

    So when you hear my voice
    Don't think it's deja-vu
    It's just me speaking my mind again
    If i do step on your toes
    Don't take me for a foe
    Yes,i'm still playing my role
    If i flip the script on you....
    Don't scream "sacreligious!!"
    Like every script mine also has "THE END"
    Yes,in bold...you don't have to remind me about my boundaries

    I choose to be as ice-bound as i want to be
    For the "chill" is in my spine and not yours
    I stand tall and look beyond the signatures of shaddows on the walls
    My vision betraying the status-quo
    I see the bricks and not the wall
    I see the trees and not the forest
    So don't give me your magnifying glass coz i have my own eyes
    So if you ever feel i need your validation....know this.....
    VALIDATION IS A FREEBIE I GIVE MYSELF!
