How it all began

To know where you came from,

will determine how far you get in life.

Since I started off in the gutters,

I was promised struggle and fear.

 

As a child of nearly seven,

learning to survive is to save,

because without education you are nothing,

and without money you cannot escape.

 

Many nights of confusion,

led me to believe,

life as I knew it had to change,

before we sunk deeper into this mess.

 

I grew up wondering,

what path I was destine to take.

Society didn’t make it easy,

lost opportunities denied,

denied at birth.

 

One day I discovered this opportunity,

to leave this place I once knew as home.

I studied real hard to pass the test,

with the idea of me leaving this place.

 

With my luck I passed,

was given the opportunity to leave this place,

to study aboard and succeed,

I was choosen out hundreds.

 

Since destine is established at birth,

there is nothing you can really do.

I was told I was too young,

and we could not afford to commute.

 

After the heart has been broken,

its difficult to piece it back together.

The beginning of the end was written,

predetermined, and pre decided.
