A part of riches

Its not where you come from,
its where you are going that matters.
Your parents can have the biggest house,
driving the most expensive car.
but that's their life and you...
You are just a part of it.
Maybe you want to be as rich as your father,
or you want to be the first one in your family to ever go to university.
I don't know your story.
But what I know is that you...
You can make it happen, remember.
It's not where you come from,
its where you are going that matters.
Its up to you to make your candle light up.
Work hard and never give up.
Maybe you don't want to be an alcoholic like your uncle 
You don't want to be abused like your aunt.
Don't let the darkness of the world scare you.
You are capable, You are a part of riches
All your dreams will come true but its all up to you.
You will be the mentor you never had.
Regardless of where you come from,
where you are going you will make it.
Just like a runner in a marathon,
You will be a winner of your own race.
Be there for yourself. Don't lose hope.
