“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
~Audrey Hepburn

I don't want to give up
now is not the time
I've come too far
to fall flat on my behind

it is what I'm destined to do
achieve great things
that is the one task
my ancestors left to me

they fought hard for me
to be where I am
I'd still be a slave
if they hadn't taken a stand

it's admirable
what they did
I want to teach that same perseverance
in the future, to my own kids
