I asked for a pencil, a simple thing you say,
so why do you raise your voice, and make me feel this way?
I only wanted to study for a little while, it's true,
but I can't really do this when you make me feel so blue.
I know you think I can't read, or even give it a try
when you raise your voice to me and make me want to cry.
Well, let me tell you something, and it comes from my heart:
I'm not stupid, dumb or ignorant. God has given me a new start.
For you see, He knows I can do it, for He's helping me!
And some day even you will begin to see my victory!
I will not be held back, for the world is mine, you see,
because God himself has given my spirit back to me!
