The White Shoes (My Story) Inspired by Wale
It was freshmen year, I was never the popular kid.
I wore Chucks, they wore Nikes.
They would laugh, they would snicker, I spent days in the library in a corner crying.
Begged my mom for those white Nikes, rent was due, fridge was bare.
I got those fresh, White Nikes. They still laughed.
Those white shoes taught me to love myself, appreciate what I have and to work hard for the things I want.
"Say we can't always be fly, We gon' be good long as them sneakers white."
