The Ambition Flows

Pardon me
But the ambition flows
Deep within my veins
Into my heart and spirit
Oh yes, the ambition flows
Try going on Ramen and bologna sandwiches
Penny scrounging for bread and milk
Even pawning gold bracelets for the university enrollment fee
Having jeans with rips forming and trying to make the best with one pair of shoes
While my peers got their first cars and cell phones
I couldn't wait to work to take the strain off my family
But now I've graduated with a bachelor's and I still can't fight the way of life and humanity
One thing for certain
The ambition flows
Deep in my veins
Embedded in my mind and spirit
Oh, the ambition flows
