I wasn't brought up with a silver spoon
I knew I would strike gold on my own
I never asked anyone to break my fall
I knew one day I would soar above them all
I did not fall in with the crowd
I knew they would turn to me in the end
I was asked to wear faces like masks
I knew I had to look in the mirror someday
I was asked to fall in line more than once
I knew exactly where that line ended
I was told about caution and prudence
I chose integrity and passion
I was expected to wither, to crash and burn
I was sorry to disappoint them
I am everything I could be
I choose to be everything I can be
Today is the first day
Of the rest of my life.
