We choose to be different

They said we were too young to dream 
They said we were too divided to ever 
agree on anything 
They said our eyes were set too high 
High above the distance between 
ourselves & the skies 
But today, this is what we have become 
Standing proudly with good thoughts 
all 
over 
They said we were too ambitious to ever 
focus on a very certain target 
Alas ! 
We agreed to disagree to defy ill-fate 
They said we walked as if we were better- 
off than our forefathers 
Walking with our 
chests raised up high 
Courageously shaking off the dust over 
our feet 
As if we evolved from an unknown 
territory 

Today, we still walk with pride 
Yearning to graciously hand over to the 
forthcoming generation 
Something 
entirely priceless. 
We chose to be different !
