I am a first generation student going to college.
All I want to do is further my knowledge.
Everyone doubts me because of my race
but they don't understand the struggles I face.
An opera singer is what I aspire to be
Singing solfege like do re mi.
Parents tell me it is a waste of time,
who knew following your passion would be such a crime.
Years to come I will succeed
and show everyone that I could indeed.
