A Dream

It all started with a dream
-
A dream that
-
One day I might be something
-
I always thought it might be books
-
I always thought it might be my smarts
-
But the report card
-
It just wasn’t right
-
It said that I wasn’t bright
-
So, I tried to fight and fight
-
Until one special night
-
When I picked up the mic
-
That when I realized
-
That music was my life
-
Then I picked up a pen
-
And I just started writing
-
Just sitting there writing and writing
-
Till the sunset
-
I realized then
-
It wasn’t too late
-
To chase and finish my dream
-
So I want to say thank you everybody
-
Who thought the kid that
-
That sat in back
-
Would be the one
-
With a story to tell
-
So I’m going to tell it until I die
-
And I’m going to try and I’ll try
-
To be the best alive
-
But who knows now
-
I want to be a legend
-
Next Bob Marley
-
But right now I’m just trying to tell my story
-
But now I’m just a young man
-
And I hope yall will pray for me

That was really good. Little grammar error where you say "that when I realized" Should be a was or a contraction in there. But yeah, great song.
