At the End of the Tunnel

I'm a mathematician and have taught mathematics and related courses for over 3 years. Still working on myself. Still I rise

my-humble-beginnings

Someday I Will See the End of the Tunnel

Today I may not be a chooser

But someday I will have a choice

Today I may not be right

But someday I will have rights

Today I may not be heard

But someday I will have a voice

Today I may not be the best

But someday I will be better

Today I may not know

But someday I will have knowledge

Today I may not be seen

But someday I will be celebrated

Today I may be down

But someday I will be above

Today I may be weak

But someday I will be strong

Today I may be small

But someday I will be great

Today I may be poor

But someday I will be rich

Today I may be a prisoner

But someday I will be free

Today I may be in the dark

But someday I will be a light

Today I may be humbled

But someday I will be elevated

Despise not my humble beginnings.
