My day had changed, some people appeared to me,
As I was thinking of my losses and more to
Things become much brighter when you learn of a
From a country, Guatemala is from where once they
Our paths had crossed for a reason I do believe,
Meant to be,

A fight for this meal.

Shoes for their feet, today such a great feeling,
my plans had changed.
He said to me, " If you think you're full and had
Enough to eat, Save half
For tomorrow, fore nothing matters more than the
I listened today to a man who was once a child
In a sorrowful place.
