I once was told I was never to succeed,

Because of my skin color and the way that I breathe.

Although I am not privileged,

Nor do I have eyes deep as ocean blues,

I am human and I refuse to lose.

I am an extict tiger breed looking for bread,

Hungry, ambitious and refused to be less fed.

I will succeed,

I will fly high,

I will one day rest without sigh.
