So I Am Told

So I am told I shall end up as another statistic
Another person to fall under the pressure of being perfect
My mind was free but I wouldn't be held back

Yet they still told me
That I would fail
I would become a victim of cruelty
They said I should live for another tomorrow

I tell them that I was born to win and I would die before I lose
Everyday I pass by people ignoring other them
What if I loved the person who was within inches of my face

I tell them to live in the real world
Where people kill and die
Where I inhale pollution
Where people tell me I shall not succeed

I tell myself that I'll change the world
I will not break down and give up
I'll smile at the world and pretend that nothing fazes me
I tell myself that I shall prosper no matter what I am told
