Being two people at the same time is hard.
And I will admit that I am two; one side I guard.
At school, I may look smart and act like I'm on the right track.
In reality, I'm struggling and I'm scared I might crack.
I push to maintain a good grades at school;
So I can go to college, even if everyone I have to fool,
That my life is okay back at home.
At my house, I'm seen as someone who gets too angry.
Perhaps with that, I agree.
But is it so hard to understand why?
We're struggling to get by;
I don't want to be like this that when I get older.
It was hard enough my parents had to cross the border.
Everything I can do now is 'cause of them.
But even with all the bad times, my life is still a precious gem.
No matter how hard I fall, I've got to get up,
And every time I do, I'll ask Life, "What 'Sup"?
I have to change these two, to make them one.
Perhaps they'll be better off together.
