I think of myself as a giant,
Cos I'm one.
Fought in a battle among five hundred million infants,
And I'm the only one that won!

I am an author, am actor and a writer.
I am caring, a kind soul lifter.

In every season, I show my existence.
Living in truth, and avoiding pretence.

There was a time when I was so broke.
Was down to earth, got a couple poke.
But luckily, it did not last.
And now, I'm recounting my past.

Had nothing before, but now a King.
Had a cracky voice, but now I sing.
Mounting up now, I'm an eagle with a wing.
And all the enemies are feeling my sting.

I am learning how to fly though.
I am reaching where my foes could not go.
I am being what they did not know.
I am getting higher, than they could ever grow.

My name is White,
And this is just my Beginning!!!
