Since the day I was born,
I was labeled with a motto
A motto I will never forget
I shall overcome.

Through threats
Through terror
Through fear
I overcame
As I always have.

I’m a candle in the breeze
Never losing its fierce flame
For I never fear anything
Or become scared under hard circumstances
Because I shall overcome.

I may not be a threat
A terrifying scene
Or a frightening person
But as I have always said
I SHALL OVERCOME!!!
