They tried
They tried to discourage us
They bad-mouthed us
They even called us names
But we kept on going

They laughed horribly at us
But we never lost hope
We kept on working hard for what we wanted

They laughed at our hustle
They therefore lied about us
Although we did not give up
We kept on going

Because we knew that every story in the world began
When someone decided not to give up, but kept on going
No matter what the world threw at him
