I Am - Poem by Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

i am that man
that i am,
mine is what i am
for i am
that man that i am.

i give thanks
and praises
each day that goes by,
i shoot no blanks
and don't need no red faces
to embrace this when i pass by.

i hail the almighty
to guide and strengthen
my soul,
i say a prayer to the almighty
in whom days shall be lengthen(ed)
even if my feet run so cold.

i am the man
that i am
for i do what i can
to be who i am.

patience is virtue
hope is not a curfew
dont get frighten when dem catch you
for dem nah go get you
no matter howsoever dem try to set you.

fall not from grace
and sing the praise
to the mighty grace
of the 'amazing grace'
how sweet thou sound
that bounce back on me,
but not to the ground.
