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.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
