When I was Younger, my mother always told me to stand up tall;
Everyday is a struggle but I fight through it all.
With my head held high, I’ll touch the sky;
And I’ll never quit ‘til the day I die
You can say what you want about me that’s fine;
But your words won’t ever dull my shine.
You can break me down til I hit the ground;
But just like a basketball player, I will always rebound.
Even though my life has at times been rough;
All that’s done is made me tough
I’ve always fought tooth and nail;
And that’s kept me going without fail.
I can’t give up, I can’t give in;
To do so for me would be a sin.
