Now, I will step forward.
Later, I will step up.
But never, will I step down.
No speech, no sermon, no diatribe
Will break me or my ambition.
Because I have the drive.
I invite you to push my limits.
Let's just see how long they last.
I will shatter them to bits.
I don't need to surpass you
I only need to overcome me
Only then, is my success true.
My compassion comes from, "passion"
My empathy comes from, "sympathy"
Of genuine concern, I need no ration.
These things serve to empower
Not debilitating fear or weakness
That, in the face of despair, make me cower
Today, I will rise
Tomorrow I will fly
But I will never fall.
