I am from the motherland But live in the land of the so called free

The burning stereotypes

I am from the motherland

But live in the land of the so called free

Where people sting me with harsh misunderstandings of Africa

Treat me like the dirt under their shoes bc they were not used to the continent of pure gold

I was abused with words like African booty scratcher you so pretty to be african and dirty

That left me with wounds that made me

become ashamed of myself and hate my roots

But as I got older I watered them

realized that being from the motherland

Is a gift

That people didint need to open and analyze and form an hypothesis for

Stereotypes has been thrown at me but I took the pain

And found a way to make I can make a change

Africa is going to be the gold I will mine

I will Help find education stop poverty and end corruption

Than the aliens would not abuse us with their stereotypes or ignorance

There is always gonna be a spotlight for the darker skin

Bc without us what is a skin color of beauty
