From ashes to riches we all desire to rise
The American Dream surely will save us from our demise
But keep in mind your mind: use your head and hands
Because from dream to action can become your plans.
Hard work, dedication, and perseverance are the keys
Support, love, family, and help if you please
These are what will get you to your destination
They will be your start and your foundation.
Whatever you dream of, whatever you want
You can achieve it even if your circumstances taunt
No matter who you are and no matter where you're from
No matter your background: the mansion or the slum.
Anyone can create, imagine, seek, and invent
And with stars in your eyes you begin your ascent
No matter how long and how matter how far
You can and you will raise the bar.
