What I want to be

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.
