The sea wonders where my strength lies
Broken shadow ponders how I survived
Withered flowers wonder how
I smiled with my broken heart
But I say I am a man
Phenomenon by nature

Before the war I was made strong
Even warriors bow for my blind bravery
Dark birds sing in appraisal, for their generation I have saved from slavery
But I say I am a man
Phenomenon by nature

Sun smiled at night at
The glance of my face
Moon worship at my feet
To entertain my gaze
But I say I am a man
Phenomenon by nature

Fear fears my black skin
Death fears my shattered soul
As nakedness wrapped my clothe skin
But I say I am a man
Phenomenon by nature
