in this techy fast-paced world
everyone has 2.5 billion answers for every question

remember this.

you’re not a slowpoke
you’re not a slacker
you’re not a scaredy-cat

live from within.

you are unique
you’ve got this
you are enough.

Remember I told you

Black is beautiful
Never cracks
One of a kind

You owe nobody
Walk tall. Chest out
Own every moment

You deserve to be in
Every great room
You find yourself
