You are the model minority.

Focus on where you keep your eyes, 

Because with utmost authority

The Asian kids should always take the prize.

You are the model minority.

Remember that your race

Should be more than enough to give you superiority; 

Victory, surely, must be a lingering aftertaste.

And never forget that you are on the runway.

So no matter how much you fear or resent the stereotype,

You must continue to fly up to sun

And keep failure at bay.

But please, as the stereotype, I beg: stop the snipe

For the pressure will always win, and I will run.
