i know myself


i know myself
i know i'm black
i know i'm short
i know i'm intelligent
i know i'm in love
i know what i want
i know i'm a legend
i know i was gonna make it
i know i'm an african
i know i love her
i know when i'm sad
i still remember how to dance salsa
i know when i'm hungry
i know when i'm wanting
i know when they are waving
i remember she is my sister
i know she is my mother
i still remember she is my best friend
i remember i love to eat
but how do i know my name when i'm batling with amnesia, but as they say love conquers all.

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
