We wanted to make our family proud.
Our teachers thrilled.
Our peers happy.
But growing up,
We always made our family shake their head in disappointment,
Our teachers in disapprovement,
Our peers in dissatisfaction.
Then growing up,
We realized we didn't always need to make our family pleased,
Our teachers delighted,
Our peers overjoyed.
We just need to make ourselves proud,
It's how we'll grow up.
