Many people saw me as a non-existent thing
Many people saw me as a laughing stock
Many people thought failure was my second name
But despite their thoughts, I am still standing
Never expect everyone to love you
Never expect everyone to be in your corner
The most important thing in life is what you make out of what you have
My knowledge is the assistant to my success
