Is it wrong to be scraed ?


Is it wrong to be scared
To not know how to be prepared

Because we’ve come from so much pain and agony
With peace and hope I can’t just keep imagining
All the possibilities that could happen
Hoping that you discover your own passion

Not just to live for small satisfaction
Asking for you to take action
Because you remember the stories of the protest
All for unjust arrest
Men and women just trying to be there best

And if I may confess
I’m scared of the process
Being judged for what I’ve been born with
That nappy natural hair
The type that needs much care
On my knees learning the Lord’s Prayer

That dark soft skin
Better than the works of the cotton gin
Cause you remember what pac said
“The darker the skin the deeper the roots”
I’ve got all the attributes

But is that what you see
I know in my heart what I keep

Is it wrong to be scared
To not know how to be prepared
Should I just take a chance
All in one glance
For my dreams to be enhanced
Should I just take a chance
Escape this trance

Oh should I just take a chance
