I am who I am


I am a queen of the Nile like Cleo and Nefertiti,

It doesn't even matter if you like, friend, or see me,

I wipe off all my makeup

And cut off all my hair,

And discover so much beauty I didn't know was there,

You may look at me and say my face isn't beat,

But I would calmly tell you to have several seats

Because the beauty within spreads faster than a disease,

And I may not reveal too much

Cause I never aim to please

But please, understand that I am who I am,

And my words only call for the strong, I want you, like Uncle Sam

My spirit will never be a quitter,

And I'll never hide behind a filter,

Because I know one thing for sure,

I am so much more than a picture.
