The poem is credited as having "words by Beyoncé," as "remixed" by poet Forrest Gander. The poem was created from an interview Beyoncé gave to Dominic Teja Sidhu and Christopher Bartley.

"I took the interview and, keeping close to her original language, but sometimes altering it for formal reasons, juxtaposed selected phrases to create a rhythm that I felt expresses the almost stark sincerity of Beyoncé's tone in the interview."
