Maybe I do have a low ability,
But it doesn’t reflect my capability.
I’ll never amount to anything,
Is that what you want to instil in me?
I want you to want me to do well,
That’s the only way I’ll excel.
Help me to be courageous,
Help my confidence to swell.
If I don’t feel I’m respected
I’ll behave worse than expected.
It’s a vicious cycle,
In the end I’ll be ejected.
Don’t you want me to believe?
Help me to believe.
You’re my surrogate parent
Help me to achieve.
I’m not the smartest if we’re realistic
But we can still be optimistic.
Have high expectations of me
I’m not just another statistic.
