Believe while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Study while others are sleeping.

Smile while others are frowning.
Commend while others are criticizing.
Persist while others are quitting.

When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden,
Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden,
Half-dead sittin in their own sick, the scent thick,

Left him with nothin’ but ruined pride,
Something new inside, a voice saying,
«Alex, you gotta fend for yourself»
He started retreatin’ and readin’ every treatise on the shelf.
