There Is Only One Goal

It's the driving force that lies deep within my soul. 

There is only one goal, success.

Two jobs and a full time student, overwhelmed with stress.

Mother says, "a woman should smile even when she's a mess."

Close your eyes, breathe in, breath out.

It's time to run, this is my body giving a shout.

Remind yourself of your goal, 

Everything you do is for the ol' man and lady.

To be able to buy them a house back in there country.

They came here for the American dream.

They worked their ass off for you to succeed.

There is only one goal,
