So Be It! - Poem by Faduma Fiasco

if your hating on me cuz of who i are
so be it...
if i get a ticket 4 speeding in my car
so be it...
if im better than you in every single way
so be it...
but, that dosent mean i dont want to hear wat u got 2 say

if they forgot about mama africa thru the years
so be it...
i just hope they recognize them tears
if im living my life
so be it...
feel free to look at my back and see the knife (so be it)
that has been there for soo long
so be it...
1st step to forgiveness is admitting when your wrong
why, so many things we things we see thru our eyes
sometimes it isnt there but a figment of our lies (so what)
we dont care but leave it there shattered and broken
Sobe it is the lyfestyle words unspoken
