In my humble beginnings
Which were resources slim
Great hope I did have
Grand goals I’ve set
I was unlucky odds
Opposed my diligence
Hence today
My piece job
Keeps me in shape
So tell me not
I’m useless and hopeless
Don’t contend I’m goalless
For I’m in this situation
Not by choice and make
It’s nature’s will
I pride at least
In the sweetest fact
That I’ve stashed good
From my thin earnings
Enough to set me off
To a new beginning
