I am from far away
Away from dreaming and hoping
Away from civilisation
Away from exhilaration
Away from prosperities
Away from a life of fortunes.
I’m from rags where riches
were seen as impossible
where judgements from the society
are the ones taken as sensible

I’m from the mud and stick house
that was poorly built by the poor
I’m from the rocky grounds that when hit
bring wounds
I’m from the short indigenous trees growing
from those grounds
I’m from next to an ancient river that yields
no hope for the future. But still after all I conquered

Yes I’m from a place where being a pilot was undreamt
Considering yourself being an actuarial scientist
Used to bring laughter to the society
Considering yourself driving the latest Mercedes
used to bring laughter to the society
I’m from a place where my abilities and capabilities
were taken for granted, where being undermined
was everyone’s daily inspiration
but after all I conquered all.
