I Am Great

I am great

Born into greatness
By a great one
Who taught me the greatest love of all

A rock
Tan toned
Made of pure femininity
Ill-educated and teased by the American Dream

She taught me to be
To live
To reach

I am product of her struggles
Grown up to taunt stereotypical beliefs with pleasure

Not cocky
But proud to brag if it makes her smile
For her benefit only

This world
This system
That was designed for my failure
Means nothing to me
Your thoughts
The same

She matters
Her words
Her perception
Is my only relevant approval

And if she is happy
I am great

If she is proud
I am great

And I’ll walk this path that she paved for me with her hands tied behind her back
carrying loads of worldly burdens

And I’ll do it in the clouds

I Am Great
