" This piece describes how in the world, one may not be accepted by other people, so they are forced to do what they don't want to do. However, in their hearts, there is still the passion inside that can let them hope. This connects to the concept of what I understand about the world, passion, and more because realistically, not everyone can do what they want to do.But somewhere in the world, another person will learn from what you do."
