In this babel
I'm to find my feet

In this city of vice
I'm to live and learn

A land of pain,few gains
Still,they yearn for my best

My head held high
but how long can it rise?
My neck tweaks from the strain
Yet,it dares not drop

I'm caught in a raging storm
Again,i'm told to stand tall
but how did i jump?
from a thorny cliff to a stony sea

How do i remain unscathed?
All eyes on me now

My test beats my head
how do i proceed?

Oh mama nature
where hath thou placed me?
