Brunei Terrell


See her? She's not like us.

She doesn't have a pressed shirt, neat hair, and money for the bus.

You're right, it's true. She's not like you.

She ain't got a dime, and her clothes are not new.

Her mom's out of work, and her dad smokes a lot.

But she still comes to school, and smiles with all she got.

Yeah. but really inside, she's probably depressed.

I think she blames it on her heritage.

But she is so happy,

Maybe that's what we should try to be.

Trying to be proud of being a black girl, you see?
