A different type of feeling.
Learned to put away my feelings.
Creating a legacy running deeper than my descendants.
I’m a QUEEN and deserve no less.
Deleting stress, my beautiful black skin I love to caress.
We have to motivate ourselves.
Can’t depend on anyone else.
Have to get our education
Cause that’s the only way to wealth.
They shoot us down when we reach out our hand and ask for help.
So in the end when I leave, I hope my legacy is still felt.
