ARROGANCE ... Or ... Self BELIEF ... ??????

Which of These Is Part of ME ... ?
I Have An Idea But What Do You See ... ?

Some Have Said They See ... VANITY ... !!!!!

Well For Many Years I Saw ..... UGLY ......

Cos' That's What People Said To Me ........

BIG NOSE ... BIG LIPS ...
And .... " CroOKed Teeth " ....
And YES Dark Skin Make Me COMPLETE ...

But Nazis And Those In ... " White Sheets " ...
Don't Think That I Should Walk The Streets .... !!!

That's Why I NOW Have ... " SELF BELIEF " ... !!!!!

NOT Arrogance Or VANITY ... !!!!!

You Should Check Your ... " HIS-Story " ...
I'm NO LONGER Gonna Be Made To Feel Like I'm ... " Ugly " ... !!!!!

By ANYONE Who's FEARING Me ...
Because of Things They Hear Me Speak ...

YES I Am SMART And Have ... " BEAUTY " ... !!!!!

Outside And Inside of ME ... !!!
I Move With GRACE And ...... " DIGNITY " ......

And Maintain THIS ... " Humility " ...

That's SELF-BELIEF NOT Vanity ... !!!!!

How Dare You Try To Say That's ME ... !!!!!

ALI ... Showed Blacks How To Be ...... !!!
He Spoke His Mind And Touched Mankind ... !!!!!

YES ... " Black and White " ...
Even When They Criticised ... !!!!!

But Nowadays Those SAME White Guys ... ?
Have Now Accepted He Was Wise ...

And ... " SHOCKED THE WORLD !!! " ...

When He Won Fights ...
And PROVED His Words Were NOT JUST Rhymes ... !!!!!

Some Would Say He Was ... " ARROGANT " ... !!!!!!

Well I Would Say ..
He Used BRAVADO For ... " Defence " ... !!!

While Many Think That Pounds and Pence ...
Or Even Worse YES Dollars and Cents ... !!!
Make Them FEEL A Sense of .... " Strength " ....

Kind of Like THOSE In .... " Parliament " .... !?!

It's NICE To Hear A Compliment ... !!!

But If You Don't Want To ...
DON'T GIVE ME ONE ... !!!

Trust Me Son ...
I'll Do It MYSELF .... !!!!!!!

It Helps Me COPE With ... "My Problems" ...
And Problems People Have With ME ...
Like Saying I'm Full of ... " VANITY " ... !!!!!!

That's NOT ME But Is That YOU ... ???

Do You Feel You Have To PROVE ...
That You're STRONG Just Like KING KONG .... !?!

Don't You REMEMBER What Happened To Him ... !!!!!
Women And Men Should ... " OVER-stand " ... !!!!!

You're Told You're WEAK By Government Man ....
To Make You Feel That You Should Be ... PLEASED ... !!!

That You Don't Have To BEG For Your Daily Meal ... !!!!!!!

When MANY People Get A RAW DEAL ... !!!!!!

So How Do Those Words Make You FEEL ... !?!

I WON'T Conceal But Will REVEAL The Man I See ...
A Man of Words Who Has Now Learned ...

To Believe In ... " ME " ... !!!!!!
NOT .... " Society " .... !!!!!!

Cos' Society DOESN'T Want To See ... !!!
A Man Like Me USE .... " Poetry " ....
To Make Individuals Finally SEE ...

That SELF BELIEF ISN'T Vanity .... !!!!!!!

Take A Look In Your Mirror And When You See ...
An ARROGANT Glimmer ... Let VANITY Simmer ................
And Drift Awaaaaaaayyyyyyy ...................................................................................................

Like Watching Kids Play On A Beautiful Day ... !!!!!

These Are Words To Help You Sway ...

Your Mind AWAY From .............................................................. " ARROGANT WAYS " ... !!!!!!

See SELF BELIEF Can Give Relief ...

And May Just HELP Your Mind To REACH ... !!!!!
A Place of HOPE And ..... " Inner Peace " ......

My Thanks Go Out To The ... " Master Jeff " ... !!!
And The ... " Henry Family " ... !!!!!

For Showing Me LOVE When I WASN'T Loving Me ... !!!!!

These Are Words That Bring Tears To My Eyes ...
Cos' They Take My Mind Back To Sad Times ...
I Have Had ... "Within My Life" ... !!!

But Now I'm UP And Willing To FIGHT ... !!!!!!!!

For Peace and Love Within My Life ... !!!

"Mum, rest in PEACE, I LOVE YOU STILL More Than ANY, Dollar Bill !"

So Folks Let Me Ask You What Do You See ... ?

An ARROGANT MAN of ..... " VANITY " ......

Or A Man Who's EMBRACING...

....... " SELF BELIEF " ....... ?
