Beautifully Human

Beautifully Human is a song that is a simple push back of anyone who might think that a person is less than because of the color of their skin or anything in their outward expression that might be considered different or other. It is a celebration of the sacredness and value of every human being created. We might not always agree on many things, we might not always have the same perspective, we might not always have uniformed outward expressions, but we are all beautifully human because we have been endowed with life, breath, and the privilege of being in this lifetime and in this moment.

May we all remember that we are BEAUTIFULLY HUMAN!

BEAUTIFULLY HUMAN

Words & Music by Naomi Wachira

I wish the world could believe, that my brothers and sisters we are meant to be

No, we are not accidents; no we are not,

We are not the sons and daughters of the damned

Pre-Chorus

So don’t treat us like we are a cursed race

Don’t treat us like we are a cursed race

We are human, we are human too …

Chorus

I know that I am, I am, I am, I am

I wish we didn’t have to prove our worth,

And the world could finally see us as equals,

No, we are not accidents; no we are not,

We are not the sons and daughters of damned

Pre-Chorus

So don’t treat us like we are a cursed race,

Don’t treat us like we are a cursed race

We are human, we are human too …

Chorus

I know that I am, I am, I am, I am

Pre-Bridge

Don’t make me prove, why I should be, why I belong,

Why I deserve to be here, I deserve to be here x2

And I know that I am, I am, I am, I am

And so is anyone who can walk, who can talk, who can laugh, who cry, feel pain

So is anyone who can’t speak, who can’t hear, who can’t see, who’s never had a free mind, So is anyone whether brown or white or any other color 

We’re Beautifully human, Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautifully human, Beautiful
