A Unique Breed By Nature


I have the American intelligence
and I have the African wisdom
I have the American agility
and I have the African speed
I got the American ability to trash talk
and sometimes I have the African work ethic to back it up
I know my American History
and I always remember my Ghanaian culture
I have the American mentality of never quitting
and I have the African mentality of “Never say die, until the bones are rotten”
I strive for perfection like my African parents will want me to
But in the American world and reality, No one can be perfect
America made me a daredevil
But Ghana or Africa made me a brave man who is afraid of nothing
The American way, made me talk back towards my peers
But the African way, made me know my limits
America made me respect certain people
But Africa made me respect everyone
I can easily work with anyone:
With a white man, to them, I am not a harmful black guy
A black man, to them, I am their brother from another mother
A Hispanic man, to them, we are from a 3rd world place
An Asian, to them, we got strict parents
This is the truth, this is a fact, this is the real world.
Africans want their kids to get in the medical field
but Americans want their kids to do what makes them happy
I have experienced pretty much both sides of the world
I know what sadness is, I know what happiness is
I know what hatred is, I know what love is
I know what laziness is, I know what perseverance is
I know a lot, but I can’t say I know it all
I am never bored
because there is always a Ghanaian/African movie to watch
I am never bored because there is always a Ghanaian music to listen to
I am never bored
because there is always a white, black, hispanic, asian person to hang out with
I love a lot of people
and some people love me
Remember! Not everyone will love you
Not everyone will trust you
Not everyone will praise you
and definitely not everyone will appreciate you
But always try to be you
AND BE PROUD .
