Raised from the ground up,
Making sure I didn't mess up.
From the lowest to the highest,
From the darkest to the brightest.
Misunderstood at times,
Yet the ladder to the top he climbs.
Never surrendered to circumstances,
Making the best out of his chances.
Now the world shines to brightly,
He knows everything didn't come lightly
He understands that honey isn't always sweet,
And that the cold isn't always conquered by a sheet.
He knows what doesn't kill him makes him stronger,
Gaining knowlege day by day as he gets older.
Like the eagles with unlimited freedom he flies,
Soaring and searching for better skies.
