"Destiny"
(Benny Benjamin / Mary J. Blige / Gloria Caldwell / Sol Marcus / Brian Reeves)

People tell me my life was predestined
From my life others shall learn a lesson
Born a leader with the world on my shoulder
Age is young but my mind is much older
Living up to everyone's expectation
Condemned me to a world of damnation

I gotta clear these voices from my head
All these opinionated noises
Listen to the voice of my creator
Opens door to a path much greater
On this path the days draw nearer
When I can be happy, finally happy yeah

Searching for my destiny
I'll search for what makes me happy
??? what others thought of me
I gotta be happy, finally happy

Searching for my destiny
I'll search for what makes me happy
??? what others thought of me
I gotta be happy, finally happy

Time to broaden my horizons
Come out from the dark and opened up my eyes and
Started to define my destiny
Experience what life can really be
No longer concerned with your opinion
Over my life I have dominion
I'm stronger now than before
I'm sure I can be so much more
Not what you thought I would be
'Cuz I'm gonna be happy yeah
I'm gonna be happy
Finally you see, oh

Searching for my destiny
I'll search for what makes me happy
[?] what others thought of me
I gotta be happy, finally happy
