Who am I?

30 May




By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.



Who am I?

A confused young man

A brilliant young man

A talented young man

A loving young man

A lonely young man

A young man

Raised by life’s experiences and influential’s

I was born with no father

I am a bastard

But this bastard defied the odds

Conquered the stereotypes

Don’t tell me what you think I am

Cause I already know me

My struggle

My swagger

My intelligence

I am me

The infinite one

Telling the establishment that I can’t be touched

Like a Teflon Don running the streets of his realm

I define greatness by striving for goals once thought unachievable

I lie not where sleeping dogs lie

But in a royal cornucopia of diversity

I am unique

I am diverse

I am the younger brotha

Touching your hearts through the words I spit from my soul

I am blessed beyond measure

Yet cursed to define the answer

Who am I?

I am me
