I long for respect

and I know words hold power,


As an African I am taught to never let another mispronounce or change my name,

thus would it be fair to caution those who label me based on negative trends?


I long to be addressed by what is befitting to me,

henceforth I shall only answer to the name I’ve given to you or the title King.
