My dream makes my heart beat

My ambition feeds my soul

The journey which I seek

Will take me through many tolls


I have to work hard to pay my dues

Creating a plan to see it through

Stay focused, stay strong with whatever path I choose

With guidance, and perseverance, my dream will come true


Homework, projects, and experience are my chores

Distractions will come to bend the way

The path may detour

But I’ll never be lead astray


Long or short the path I take

My education and future is what makes my life tick
