As you breathe in the air and look all around
Marvel at the eagle flying high from the ground
Create in your mind a new goal today
Be unafraid, there is always a way.
To achieve in this life is why we are here
You must keep on trying to dispel all your fears
Step boldly forward and you choose your time
Don’t let others just use you that is a crime.
Look up to the heavens keep your spirit strong
Like the beautiful eagle and never know wrong
So if you have something to offer at all
Act on your dreams and beliefs and always walk tall.
