While I am able to work and stay here for now,
There's still some disadvantages that make me mad.
I'm not saying I deserve the world,
Neither that I should get sympathy.
Just that things should open up more for us Dream kids.
Like a constant requirement for schools and scholarships:
U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
The bold words that haunt me
Causing us to look away.
We have potential
We put in the work
We have the drive
Like everyone else around
So it's not fair that we don't qualify, because of those bolded words.
Because my parents wanted a better life.
Now I ask you,
Do you have any idea how it feels to be turned away?
To be dissapointed that you cannot apply only because of the words?
Am I doing wrong for wanting to succeed?
Can I not want to Dream?
