To know me, to know me
I can tell you, I don't make it easy
To be honest, I'm still learning myself
There are parts of me that I turned off, hidden for years now
If I didn't, I don't think I could function as a "normal" person in this society
I was born an Artist, something that I hide
Here to "starve" that's what they say, Give your heart and soul for little to no pay
I've got book smarts too....
but no matter what I do my he[art] always goes back to ArtTragedy
There are moments when I'm immersed in my craft and I've never felt so alive
I MEAN, MY GOD I'VE NEVER FELT SO A-L-I-V-E!
Never have I felt so close to God than through ancient movements
I almost feel like I can fly
Every time it is spiritual...
So, maybe if you want to get to know me, you should start by dancing with me
Experience how my eyes light up with Hope
How my hips sway with the same enthusiasm as my Ancestors did when they heard the drums
And feel my heartbeat jump from excitement with the possibility that maybe---
I can fly.
