It’s Viano!

Society has a way of bringing you down
Putting you under pressure
Making you frown
Gives you the impression that you’re never good enough
Fills you with doubt— damn, it’s crazy

They say you need this, you gotta buy that
They say you’re too thin then say you’re too fat
It’s never enough, they’re always wanting more
It’s so many illusions and multiple confusions

They tell you slow down then say you’re not fast
They tell you be strong then say you’re too tough
You’re never too old but you must stay young
It’s so many illusions and multiple confusions

But go ahead, go ‘head and be you
Now go ahead, go ‘head and be true
There’s nothing wrong, there’s nothing wrong with you
There’s only one you and you’re enough

Now go ahead, go ‘head and be free
Now go ahead, go ‘head and be real
There’s nothing wrong, there’s nothing wrong with you
There’s only one you and you’re enough

Society makes unrealistic standards
Puts you through much trauma
Constant stereotyping, racial profiling
It’s crazy, how lousy
Too much propaganda, endless programming — it’s frightening

They say you’re not black but then you’re too dark
They say you’re not bright but they don’t want smart
You’re feeling so small and filled with self-doubt
Listen, You’re enough

No matter your complexion, no matter your race
No matter what your size is, no matter your shape
You’ve got your own shine, you’ll shine at your pace
No matter who are, you are enough! Okay.

About You Are Enough

You Are Enough is a rap infused spoken word poetry that talks about the role society plays in programming people to think that they are out of place if they don’t “belong”, buy certain things, alter their looks or encouraging to be who they truly aren’t.

There’s so much pressure on people to be made, to be politically correct, to look “good” or “different”. The list is endless. It goes to show that no matter what one does, society will still complain. At the end of the day, it’ll be best for one to be themselves— to be comfortable in their skins, bodies, races— with the people they truly are, the people they were born to be because they are enough. We are enough. You are enough.
