In a world where act of humanity is inhuman


To Shewaye who was horrendously tortured for refusing to beat a toddler and the voiceless that she , in effect, represents


I came to live, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
 I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise     
to shine

I wish today it will rain all day
maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
trying to forgive you for abandoning me
praying but I think I’m still an angel away
angel away, yeah strange in a way
maybe that is why I chase strangers away
they got their guns out aiming at me
but I become near when they aiming at me
me, me, me against them
me against enemies, me against friends
somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all see blood
they start coming and I start rising
must be surprising, I’m just summising
win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
more fire

I came to live, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
to shine

Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating everytime it locks me in
paint they own pictures than they crop me in
but I will remain where the top begins
cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can every be defined
I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
that is how I know that the time is near
so we become alive in a time of fear
and I aint got no time to spare
cry my eyes out for days upon days
such a heavy burden placed upon me
but when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s

Fly - Lyrics

  1. I have seen a lot of people being 'touched' and sharing a link and saying a lot about this Ethiopian nanny who was abused in Libya just because it surfaced on CNN. What about thousands of others who are in constant daily ill-treatment in United Arab Emirates and the Middle East? If you want to bring a REAL change, get loud and bring change for everyone out there even for those behind the scenes with unheard voices. Launch a campaign.
