It Still Exists

Don’t you dare give up
Remember where you’re from
Even the children of maids and janitors
All can achieve their goals
My life now is vastly different


I’ve read and heard that it is impossible in our day and age to climb out of poverty and up into first the lower class and then the middle class, but we are proof that it isn’t impossible.

It takes more than just luck, but more than just hard work. It takes faith and belief that it is possible in the first place and then work and, yes, some luck. It takes help and not being afraid to ask for help and it takes scary moments where you have to step off of assistance and faith that you won’t immediately collapse.

Just don’t give up. Don’t you dare.
