I am Enough

Posted on Updated on

1.I am enough

 My hair is short, that’s tough

My skin is dark, my legs aren’t long

 

I don’t have the accent to prove I belong

 

But I have decided that I am enough

 

2.My cooking is not gourmet

I don’t have a poodle for a pet

My pictures are not front page yet

They forgot my name the day we met

 

3.Every thing they wear doesn’t fit me

The trousers look tight, they won’t let me be

I’ll rather be taller, thinner, lighter

Live in London, Paris, or America

 

 

4.Because I have the power, I have decided

No to the envy, it’s over

Who I am is enough! What I can do is enough Where I am is enough

I will strive to beat my record, not yours

And if you don’t agree, that’s tough

Cause I have decided, ‘I am enough’
