I have to succeed
I have to be great
I have to keep working
I have to keep persevering
I have to keep trying even when I fail

I want to be on a big stage
I want to feel the feeling of being accepted into college
I want to be recognized for my achievement
I want to one day help someone
I want to make my parents proud

I remember when I didn't care about nothing
I remember when i was insecure
I remember when I was scared of everything
I remember when I was scared to set foot on a football field
I remember I scored my first touchdown
And another one
And another one
   And another one

Now I’m not scared
Now I have all the courage I need
Now I’m going to be the best I can
You have to work hard and dream hard
And once you have enough dedication towards your dream
You will find
