A FOREIGNER IN THE STATES
MY ANCESTOR WOULDN’T BELIEVE IT
WAS BORN HERE 
AND STILL GET LOOKS
JUST LIKE THEM
YET I’M DIFFERENT.
BUT FOR WHAT 
ANCESTOR FOUGHT WITH EVERYTHING 
FOR THESE STREETS OF SHALLOW.
THE CHOSEN ONE
BUT NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE
HAVE TO BE AN EXAMPLE
A BLESSING AND A CURSE.
WHO COULD’VE KNOWN
JUST LIKE A VIDEO 
REWATCH IT 
LIKE HISTORY 
AND NOT EVERYTHING WAS TOLD
YET THIS IS ALL STILL A MYSTERY 
AND I HOPE IT WILL UNFOLD.
MY BODY FEELING OLD 
GOD TAKE CONTROL
BEFORE I LEAVE THIS EARTH 
LIKE TAKING A STROLL 
WAIT COME BACK
I JUST WANNA TALK TO THE PREVIOUS LIFE
THAT IS APART OF THIS SOUL. 
JUST NEED ANSWERS
BUT I’M LEFT ALONE.
I KNOW I WAS A GOOD SOUL
WHEN I PRAYED FOR 
FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND FOE.
FEEL LIKE A CROW
DEAD ON THE OUTSIDE 
BUT THERE’S LIGHT IN MY SOUL.
SOON I WILL GLOW
JUST LIKE THE STARS
WHEN THE MOON IS IN FULL SHOW.
