Succes is a struggle. If you're not willing to struggle, you're not willing to succeed.

To be what we have become is amazing
if our ancestors could see, they'd be in awe, just gazing
and to see what we've done as a nation, they'd be praising
we, african american, have come such a long way
although sometimes we may struggle with dismay
always keep your head held up high
black is beautiful and those are the words that i live by

being thankful for everything, i am truly blessed
but on the other hand, because of my color i can truly be stressed
but i try and keep a positive attitude
so i can show nothing but gratitude
im only human so sometimes it gets too much
thats when i call for god to be my crutch.
