The Black Girl's a Graduate

By
DESTINED TO DREAM DESTINED TO FLY

TO SHOOT WAY ABOVE THESE CLOUDED SKIES

TO LEAVE THE BOUNDRIES OF THIS EARTH BEHIND

TO VENTURE NEW WORLDS UNKNOWN WHAT SHE'LL FIND


HAIR SO THICK AND SKIN LIKE NIGHT

THE DIFFERENCE OF HER CAUSES SOME FRIGHT

BUT SHE KEPT ON WALKIN WITHOUT A FROWN

BECAUSE IN THE END SHE NEW NOTHIN COULD BRING HER DOWN

WALKING UP ON THAT STAGE HER DIPLOMA HAD BEEN WON

IT WAS MAGIC WHEN SHE REALIZED WHAT SHE HAD BECOME.
