I looked up into the sky,

And saw a young star.

I asked the star to speak to me

of freedom,

And the star replied,

Nothing in the world will

ever be given to you, Gabe.

Everything, you must fight for.

You see…the world will put

chains with locks on you…

And everything you love.

To find freedom, find the key.

To find happiness, overcome depression and anxiety.

To find yourself, accept your identity.

To love your family, accept your culture.

To be free, find the key.

Fight for your freedom.
