The way I am
Pure gold inside
Frozen when you step outside
So cold it would burn you, it’s the hot ice
Oh honey don’t get me wrong its all good on my side
Not my fault if all I had to do was be strong to survive
Not my fault if you’re put off by my independent life
Not so sure if it is my background, my colour or where I come from
I am fabulous that way, but I am also fearless!
There is nothing I’d rather be, I won’t be compromised
The way I am I will stay
Open minded, I learn things and I say
Life is different for some eiihh
I am gold but my ego is trying to melt my gold
Telling me the stuff I shouldn’t do
Purely because I am bigger than that you know
My ego getting on the way, I am not sure if I like it that way
My ego is not me I learned today
Not gonna apologise for not playing your game
My ideas and thoughts are sacred to me, not gonna take the blame
You can’t force it if it’s not meant to be, but what a shame
I love every part of me, that’s who I am
Cos’ everything is there to protect my soul, my inner being.
The way I am!
