I’ll make it one day. One day. Somehow, some way.
And I hope that someone sees that I have some talent somewhere.
Whether it be in acting or singing.
Or whether it be the fact that I have the chutzpah, and the ?,
To be able to get up and talk.
To be able to say what I’m thinking. To be able to say what I mean.
To be able to speak the heart. To be able to…talk. To be able to lead.
I will be victorious. Always be victorious. All rising!
