“Don’t Forget Who You Are”

Everyone who KNOWS me knows that one of my favorite rappers and lyricist is Common.  When this album came out, A BEAUTIFUL REVOLUTION (PT. 1), I fell in love again.  There is hope in hip hop/rap music. One of my favorite songs on the album is “Don’t Forget Who You Are.” And I close Black History Month with this song as the anthem….just “Don’t Forget”. Here are the lyrics to the song, and I don’t own any rights to this music.

Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are
You’re blessed with it
Baby, so marvelous
No one like you, just look around
Yeah, you’re too strong to turn around
 
Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are
 
Beautiful baby, I love you, baby
Pray these words may hug you, baby
Look into the mirror and say “I love you” daily
Remember your light when the world seem shady
You’re born with it, adorned with it
A gift to the world, go on, give it
Fearlessly made, no need to be afraid
Angels are with you, the path is laid
Waning thoughts of you being the star
Truly you’ll shine by seeing who you are
Reflections of you, reflections of me
The beauty more than any eyes can see
 
Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are
You’re blessed with it
Baby, so marvelous
No one like you, just look around
Yeah, you’re too strong to turn around
Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are
 
A precious jewel you are
Don’t forget who and who’s you are
Made in his likeness yeah, you different
Uniquely specific, young and gifted
You see that in another then you gotta uplift it
Your hair, your skin, the way the sun-kissed it
Mystical momma, beautiful boy
Your life is a story for you to enjoy
Wherever you stand, stand in you, stand in love, stand in joy
Stand and do everything that you ever dreamed you’d do
Your voice is yours, it will sing to you
 
Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are
You’re blessed with it
Baby, so marvelous
No one like you, just look around
Yeah, you’re too strong to turn around
 
Don’t forget who you are
Don’t forget who you are (don’t forget who you are)
