a poem for positive thinkers

for the first time
i be thinkin
like i be dealin
an i be seein stuff
i didnt never see before.
like i see me
and i see
doin your own thing
is not defiance.
it aint got nothin to do with protest.
i can be me
an it dont have to mean
that i got to show somebody somehow
that im better than they think.
cause
for the first time
i be thinkin
like i be dealin
which means i can just be me.
