Bringing American culture closer to new immigrants
Some folks walk to achievements while
They are under a shower of encouragements.
Others become historical after
They’ve been deeply belittled.
From the day I heard some tongues say that
I couldn’t do anything good, I took off
And I’ve never stopped rising, rising and rising.
