I heard Kanye rapping on this one song
Affirming his divergence
Claiming it as own.
It took me this to realize
Everything I’m not made me everything I am.
I won’t ever be able to rhyme my thoughts
Nor will I ever be a normal person
May never be the best poet.
But no one can take my creativity away from me
Cause that just everything I am.
I’ll never be able to go back to high school
And change all my mistakes,
But does it matter because I learned from them…
Everything I’m not
Proved to be everything I am.
I’ll never be the flashiest nigga out there
Never be the one to get all the girls
I’m not careless with my money
And not every woman deserves my eye.
I’ll never have the toughest interior
Will always be a lover at heart
But that’s okay,
Everything I’m not made me everything
I’ll never be the biggest person in the room,
I’ll always just be 6 ft with my hair out.
I’ll never be your ideal Jamaican
You’ll probably always hear English on my tongue
With Patois trying to break out.
I’ll never be perfct…
I realized that back when life
Made me grow,
Saw how my flaws were a part of me
How everything I’m not made me
Everything I am!
