I Work


I work
I work
I work
every day, every night
until the suns rises
until the moon dances
I work

I work
I work
I work
to reach where I want to be
to be who I want to be
until they see the true me
I work

I work
I work
I work
to free me from my past
to show the class
I'm not just a failure
so I work

and work

and work

I work
for me

I work
for the better

I work
for the worst

I work for
the good
the bad
the struggle
the pain
the love


I work
