You don’t know me

you don’t know me
don’t assume I drink
don’t assume I smoke
don’t assume I do drugs
you don’t know me

don’t assume I’m promiscuous
don’t assume I steal
don’t assume I’m an ignorant youth
you don’t know me

don’t lump me in to your idealized stereotype of a black female
don’t assume that because of my skin color, I only listen to rap music
don’t assume that I dance a certain way
don’t assume I dress a certain way
you don’t know me

Black People..
don’t scorn be because I don’t talk like you think I should.
don’t scorn me because I don’t dress like you think I should.
Don’t call me white girl or oreo behind my back
You don’t know me

My generation..
Don’t laugh at because i dont drink
Don’t put me down because I don’t smoke
Don’t mock me because I refuse to bend under peer pressure
You don’t know me

Don’t giggle and put down my faith
Don’t laugh because I have morals
Don’t put me down because I’m trying to live righteous and holy in gods sight
You don’t know me

In years to come I will not remember you face or your voice you will just be a face in the past so why change myself for you
I wont remember you

Why destroy my life for 4 years of popularity.
Why make I mistake now I will have to deal with the rest of my life
I refuse to cause I know what I can become

Adults..
Don’t assume that I’m not intelligent
Don’t assume that I don’t think about my future
Don’t assume that I’m not going somewhere
You don’t know me

Don’t shove me in with “those darn kids”
Don’t assume that I go along with the crowd
Don’t assume I’m lazy
You don’t know me

Don’t assume I’m self-centered
Don’t assume I don’t care about the world
Don’t assume I don’t have the capacity for foresight
You don’t know me

Don’t assume that I don’t want to learn about others cultures
Don’t assume I’m close-minded
Don’t assume I don’t want to see the world
You don’t know me

I want see the world
I’m learning 2 languages at the moment
And on a mission to learn them all
I want to win the world for Jesus
Now are you starting to see me

Don’t assume that my troubles aren’t important
Don’t mentally check my ideas as stupid or immature
Don’t assume I don’t have anything to give to the world
You don’t know me

Don’t assume that I haven’t eaten sushi before
Don’t assume I’ve never been to a fancy restaurant
Don’t assume I have no home training
You don’t know me

Assume I can change my generation
Assume that I can find the cure to cancer
Look at me and I’m the future
Assume that I can change my country
Assume that I can change the world
Assume the best of me

I listen to music from all around the world
Korean, Japanese, Indian, French
I’m learning about their cultures
I’m making an effort
I will make a difference
Because I know me
And I know I’m capable of
Because God made me!
