SA-ROC: "FLAWLESS" (original woman) Produced by: SOL MESSIAH ((Audio/Lyrics))

‎"FLAWLESS"(the original woman)
My mommy told me that I was a shining star. A bright light sort of a beacon amidst the dark. She stood me in front of mirrors and made me look at myself. Not at what they said I was but what I truly are. I couldn’t see the beauty I just saw a jagged scar. A high yellow short nappy headed flower wall.

We black diamonds, never stopped shining. just so used to suffering we stopped even trying. As cycles shift and dark clouds are lifting, we ride through the storm shields up, no slipping. We are wiser now. Stakes are higher now. knowledge leads to wisdom understanding locks the cipher down. then we free our culture, refine our power base, level the playing field, peep the god inside our face. Destroy our weakness build the nation from a higher place. born again as shining stars beaming from a lighter space. and that’s
