yes, we will overcome.


The world and I are worlds apart and that sets me apart
It takes more than tenacity to emerge more than a conqueror
An intransigence individual must be true to himself
Self-acceptance supersedes all human receptions

There is perfection in absolute insanity
I am the ordained dictator of my own domain

Believe in me and love me without fear for I have a blessed recalcitrance
With every accumulating disgrace, my perspectives become laced with His grace
Embrace my past as you soar along with the pinions of my future
Gold is truly refined when all existing impurities are smoldered away

I must leap over oncoming hurdles to be revealed as a victor
A sea of manmade obstacles don’t frighten me for I’ll wrestle until my heart caves in

The remnants of my uncompromising willpower are clasped securely between my palms
I’ll soon arrive in paradise but setbacks remind me to view reality with optimism
I’ll declare my unwavering convictions into a thundering zephyr
The one-time lunacy of going against all odds has its sweet rewards
