to help.

all i ever wanted was to help, when i was a child 

to be.

strong, the one to make my family proud

to win.

even when it was prideful or greedy, i wanted

to succeed.

they wished for pre-med, pre-law, oh well

i wished.

for a brighter future, a better life

to be happy.

doing something that I actually enjoyed

to know. 

if i could help someone or be his reason

to continue. 

to breathe.


i am not a lawyer. i am not a physician.

but i will counsel. not in a courtroom, and

i will diagnose. but not for cancer, and

i WILL succeed. but not for them.

for me.

to breathe.

to help others find their breath.
