Staying True by Zahir

Staying True

This is my body… I can bring positive vibes 
Born during the scariest month of the year, October
Born and raised in Philly
Always keeping my head up in hard times
Always grinding and getting work done
And stay making people smile
And staying true to myself and the people around me
Always making the best out of a bad situation
Always helping others that are in need
This body has bad eyes and need glasses to see
And it has a beard that makes me look grown 
And has a deep voice that makes me sound older
And this body has hairy arms and legs because that’s the way I was born
Also has good ears to listen to others
This body always respects others and their mother
And looks out for their friends and brothers
And most important always trying to give my all every day
