Turned away, passed down, ignored, thrown to the side
This is what happens to those who are deemed unworthy
Chastised, told by the world you will never be great
All because you have a crack or a dent which they can see
When did man have the right?
They look and they think they see
What is really meant to be?
But I say no you can’t see what I’m destined to be
They think they know you and they think they care.
Ha that’s funny because even that is not true
The truth of the matter is if you are not valuable to them then you don’t have a purpose
But who am I to say such a thing
I’ll tell you who I am
I’m the man whom you deemed insane
Crazy for being different, insane for failing at what “everyone” else has succeeded at
You can get out of my face with that
Knowing the truth and still spreading lies
Some would say you are just the man trying to keep a brother down
But I see beyond that
This isn’t a matter of race
This is you thinking that anybody who is anybody but you can’t face
The cold hard realities of life
When will you learn that you don’t have the final say?
The demons have been beaten and even the trials that have dealt some significant blows
Have taught me the lesson to never fold.
So I say once again, get out of my face with that
You talk down to me
Constantly thinking you are the best.
I refuse to settle for less
Wallowing in the deceit which you preach.
How dare you tell me I’m not good enough?
My journey is different from the rest so don’t you dare group me within that mess
The mess you say. Yes this is what I mean
The mess in your mind where you think all is fine and you claim to be unseen
I’m still killing these rhymes don’t you dare block my shine.
Can you touch me?
Enough is enough and you have to stop.
Don’t assume you have me figured out
My edges are rough but the inside is being refined
You don’t know what I’m capable of so don’t waste my time
Besides with your blinded eyes and disbelief you will never see what was truly meant to be
The power that resides inside of me
You are not ready nor will you ever be
I’m fine with that because as you can see
Your opinions don’t mean that much to me
I’m moving on from here but I did have to address this to so many listening ears
You won’t take my joy from me
Well I have to say from these lips of clay
I’m perfectly imperfect and that’s fine with me.
But you rejected me and told me I could never be.
But I’m of royalty
My crown cannot be stolen by you
So don’t be upset when we raise the bar.
Don’t be upset when you are left holding the towel
I will surpass you and you will see this through
It’s just a matter of time, before my name becomes oh so fine
Excellence shall define
So just wait and see that you aren’t shit me
Just know it’s typically the people who you doubt that show out
Karma is a funny thing
She always finds her way back to you regardless of what you do.
So talk that trash and believe the hype
I’ll be better than you think
And when you look and see
That pedestal …yea that’s for me
Stare in awe
Because I’m the stone that you, the builder, rejected.
