been listening to this song a lot lately,this part always catches my attention,very touching and meaningful.
Inspiring how you're proud of your scars.
Dark as night,you look out for the stars
Beautiful,and you are proud of your flaws.
you don't ask for an approval or a round of applause
but my heart claps in rhythm and all
and my eyes cooled by what they saw
beautiful just the way that you are,
and when i see you i remember Allah
who else could have been known but you.
like a pillar standing firm in truth
a tree with the deepest roots
the darkest berries and the sweetest juices
and the proof of your labor is your baring fruits
submission to the wind cause you graceful moves
and you are humble in your modest ways,
the arrogance stopped,the lower gaze,
you over speaks of the darker day
you made it through,
you are the proof we are gonna be okay
cause only struggle can produce strength
and your eyes i see it taking shape
like a current curves the river banks
once winding like a snake
so over time it will always take
the path that is truly straight
over time it will always make,
the river carved till the path is straight..
