I know that’s a little difficult to process for you
But this is how I was made I want to be true
In all my ways
For the rest of these days I have on this earth
I want to live by the word
I’m in my changing process

Living from a lie into the truth
I’m like blowing my own head through the roof
I’m in my changing process

People say people can’t change, but that’s a lie
People don’t want to change because it’s easier to stay the same
You have to be tired of yourself
And when I say tired of yourself I mean
I’m tired of myself
I’m in my changing process

Tired of this bondage and bad health
Nah that ain’t the way
I’m walking the straight and narrow
Dodging weapons formed like arrows
But they won’t prosper because…
I’m in my changing process

Tired of the choices I was making and uh
Tired of those turns I was taking and
Even those thoughts I was thinking
I’m in my changing process

I’m not who I used to be
I don’t think the way I used to think
I don’t do what I used to do
Don’t even say what I used to say
Changed but not satisfied
I’m in my changing process

Shifting better yet drifting all weight
Just to make it to make in the Pearly Gates
Some might say this is temporary, but it’s not
This is not a visage
Striving for who He wants me to be
The person He predestined
I’m in my changing process

Declaring and decreeing things that are meant to be
Just for me
So I defy status quo Anti-conformity on mines
I am a Jesus freak!
I’m in my changing process

I show love to my neighbors
Even to my haters yup…
I’m in my changing process

Determination is taking its toll on me
I refuse to be the same
I’m gonna be the real me
I’m in my changing process

My individuality is coming alive
It has awakening…

The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
