Do not ever give up
Because the Devil is always lurking.
I'd rather see you finish school
Then to make a living off twerking.
Everybody is unique
In their own special way.
Why not finish school
When you don't even have to pay?
When classes get too hard
You don't drop out of high school.
Because things will only get harder
You'll learn how life can be so cruel.
So it's best to follow your dreams
Since it reminds you of why you're living.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
Unless it is the Lord's bidding.
You have to have faith in yourself
Even if you're the only one.
Because who wants to be an easy target
If you knew everyone had a gun?
When reaching for the stars
Some might attempt to shoot you down.
As long as you stay true to yourself
You will one day earn the crown.
Getting your high school diploma
May not always seem like a prize.
But the feeling of walking across that stage
Could be considered a blessing in disguise.
It feels like you won first place
Competing to reach that moment.
Looking back at the competition
It's funny... you were your own opponent.
