...então, disse o meu velho:

I hold you up and said to your mother:

"This kid's gonna be the best kid in the world. This kid's gonna be somebody better than anybody ever knew."

And you grew up good and wonderful. It was great just watching, every day was like a privilege. Then the time come for you to be your own man and take on the world. And you did, but somewhere along the line, you changed.
You stopped being you.
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you're no good. And when things got hard, you started to look for something to blame. Like a big shadow...
Let me tell you something you already know:
The world ain't all sunshines and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it'll beat you to your knees and keep it there permanently if you let it.
You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.
That's how winning is done!
Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers saying you ain't what you wanna be, because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that, and that ain't you! You're better than that!
I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life, but until you start believing in yourself... You ain't gonna have a life.
