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!
