Never be ashamed of who you are,
What you have or what you don’t,
Never wish for what others have!
Wearing the same outfits is no shame
Until you do it for people, if they laugh
Let them laugh at least you’ll be warm.
Sleeping with pap and eggs or even porridge is no shame,
At least you didn’t sleep with an empty stomach.
Working at a car wash, being a gardener or maid, is no shame,
At least you’re doing something to fight poverty.
The struggle is not about luxury, is not about people
And is not about democracy or the government.
But the struggle is to fight poverty not each other.
Never forget what you’ve been through,
Where you’re coming from and where you are now!
