– meek and mild –

Aggression ain’t my middle name; it’s

Jamal, by the way.

The fact though that has so remained: I

came to stand and stay. I’m

not a lion, not a lamb –

does that make me less of a man?

Aggression ain’t my middle name, but I’m

fighting anyway.


Salute to the meek and mild; a

toast to every Friday’s child, ’cause

now that I’m not in denial, I’ll

brawl my own way.

Mistake kindness for the weak, and

pay your price expectedly, ’cause

now that I am on my feet, I’ll

brawl here today.
