Man I’m only 17,
But there's people always pushing me to do great things,
With this life I gotta build myself a kingdom for a queen.
I aim for the heavens in a moment's notice,
Feeling so much pressure that they put up on us,
I just want the success that I deserve,
Cause my worth is so much more than a couple of bent quarters.
I am desperate, I am ambitious,
Call me what you want, even if it's vicious,
But at the end of the day, I’m still me,
True to myself, I dream dreams like any other teen.

From all your negativity and things that keep me bouldered,
Many people seem to call me strange
Cause I dream big dreams and I want amazing gain.
I work so hard for "unachievable things",
Foreign ambitions, international claims,
I just merely pray for my chance to succeed,
Cause my dreams are more of a reality
Than silly "Housewives of LA".
"Poster child for overachieving",
Shout-out to God for always believing.
I am way too blessed to be stressed,
I try to thank God everyday,
For much more than this test.

I am as complex as banana bread,
But I'm as sturdy as the framework of a double bed.
I expect some respect, because I deserve it.
I carry myself with some worth, because I've earned it.
Little sayings I struggle with, it’s time I learn it:
"Dog eat dog."
"Mind ya business."
"Stay out what don’t concern ya."
Wish I was taught this lesson before my ABCs,
Algebra 2, Physics, Gym, and all them APs.
Instead, I choke on studies--
They say the career that I want
Won’t give me what I need.
They don't seem to understand.
To whom it may concern,
All I truly need
Is to be
