They want me to stay at the bottom.
They said I would be a product of my environment.
Nothing ever good happens to people "like me".
I felt my prayers weren't good enough for God to answer.
I began to ascend above the people of my environment and got a degree.
I rose above those who only settled and began to dream bigger.
I work hard and tell myself I will make it out of here.
No longer will I search blind to see what's crystal clear, my directions is unknown.
The only option is to go up.
