not afraid

standing battlefield deep

with staggering feet

my own people strike me

unlike me..

as I turned the other cheek

let them silently smack me like it taste sweet

everybody want to get  a look at me

like I am just a freak

instead of an upbeat geek

not afraid

still my parade

I say it’s still my parade- call it rejoiced pain

and I’ll wave in the rain

still my parade

not afraid

seated next to the best

thank you god oh god bless

I learned

that the fire cannot burn

oh Daniel three-seventeen-

seventeen-seventeen

not afraid

still my parade

some times people are just dark clouds

some times,sunshine,detours from the scenic route

still,I am not afraid

I got nickels,quarters, and candy to throw at my parade
