The Anomaly

by Cinque Brown

I am an anomaly because I am ME.
I don’t have a piercing on any part of my BODY.
I don’t have a tattoo on my neck, chest, torso or ANYWHERE
my skin is already perfect no need too ADHERE.
Other people know, that I am REAL;
they say, “it’s something they can FEEL”.
Eh sista I don’t have to be wearing the latest Nike SHOE,
to have enough confidence to talk to YOU
and I wont Bling Bling no matter what you say you will DO.
If I promise you something, trust I will DO IT,
no need for a contract to make me stick TO IT.
No I have not created any child out of WEDLOCK,
you look at me and seem to be SHOCKED.
Multilingual, including English, Slang and EBONICS
and still down w/mainstream linguistics like “hooked on PHONICS”.
Finished college education and I keep on READING
Science, History whatever I am NEEDING.
You look at me in amazement, cause you see that I stand ALONE
cause I been kickin it with the “most high” and I’m being guided HOME.
