How long until I finally get what I want?
Will it elude me forever?
How long will I dream and wake up to the same life?
How long will everyone else pass me by?
All I want is a better life—
I want it so bad it almost kills me.
The glances of my friends and neighbors condemn me,
for I know they ponder my failure.
I have trusted in a better life,
longed for it, worked for it.
I will fight for it with all my might,
and it will never be enough.
