Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude.

Perfection, they say, is unattainable,

Stars in the sky, they say are unreachable,

But my question is, are you willing to be teachable?

To move from a place of being unable to being capable

This is a message to all of my people,

Whose struggles carry the weight of generational evil.

The picture you paint is a collection of decisions made with every stroke,

Your pursuit of excellence would determine if you would ever break the yolk.

I would like to leave you on a very important note;

Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude.

You may have come into the world looking like the people who conceived you,

Remember you will die looking like the principles that consumed you.
