IF SELF-LOVE IS A REVOLUTIONARY ACT
THEN FEELING GOOD
IN THESE POLITICAL CLIMATES
IN THIS HARSH COLD WORLD
THAT CONSTANTLY TRY TO KEEP UP DOWN
IS A BATTLE WELL WORTH FIGHTING FOR.

CHOOSING TO SEIZE THE NEW DAY
TO SEE THE BIRDS IN THE SKY
TO EXPLORE EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD
TO LOVE THE HAIR WE ARE BORN WITH
TO FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS
TO WRITE OUR OWN STORIES…

FEELING GOOD
DESPITE…
FEELING GOOD
BECAUSE…

WE DESERVE IT
