Why

It's not what you know but who you know!

Why can't we all have one opportunity to strive and show our colors

No race, sex, gender and CLASS involved

Curtis Jackson, former drug smugler, now a multi-millionare business entreprenuer

Each and every single person has a strong trait

The world's best shoemaker is not of any importance today

Why?

Didn't meet the required qualifications:

Capital

Class

Education

All to which someone will look for a way around the system in order to say no!

Roses are Red
Violates are Blue
I' am a child of forgein born (illegal immigrant)
Guess what?
So are You!

Before pieces of papers meant anything, your ancestors migrated here too!
My parents and I pay taxes every year just like you
In my elementary years, I resited the Pleage of Allegiance like you did too
My sisters and I received free/reduced lunch like any other kid did too

I grew up and graduated out of High School 
Unlike your son/daughter that drop out too soon
Proceeding to college to be more productive
Even though I don't receive Finacial Aid benefits, that you do

Your son married a beautiful women by the name of "Guadalupe"
What will you do?
Will the color of your grandson's skin make him an "Illegal Immigrant"?
Because racial profiling will do!

Anyway, nothing that in my power will bring you back to be with me
A sophisticated person that laughed and backed you up with anything
A person to reach the top and be succesful by the power of the pen and not by the sword
Willing to penetrate the hearts of young kids to prevail
Willing to give back the best way possible, words of encouragemnt
