We are the American Dream

We are the American Dream


We are the American dream

My family was poor and now we have what we need

Food is on the table

There’s a roof above my head

And each of us has our own individual bed

We know how to read and write

We know how to clean

We know what hard work feels like 

And we work as a team


Although I don’t know how to show it sometimes

I hope that they know it

That even though I seem closed off, 

I’m totally open

I know if I need help they got me 

and vice versa


Through rhymes I’m beginning to understand the meaning of life


Nothing is worth more than what what we work for

Respect is what we work towards
