Sometimes it is hard to wake up and realize that there is no one there and you are all alone,

You're surrounded by family, but they make you feel unloved, so that is nowhere near being called a home.

But what's even worse is being surrounded by people, but you have this feeling of being lonely,

 And you feel like there is no one there for you, and you are your own one and only. 

The old me would be upset about having to write something like this,  

But for the first time I feel a sense of calm and complete bliss.

It took me a long time to realize that this is my dream, and I don't need them to understand,

Which is good, because I know even if I need them, they would not lend a helping hand.

There are people who are constantly telling me that I am not good enough, and that I can't do it, 

But they don't realize that I have overcome a lot, and that I do not quit.

I know it won't be easy, but I have to prove them wrong,

And no matter how hard it gets, I have to push forward, and I have to remain strong. 

I know it seems crazy, and I know that it seems like something that will be unrealistic to finish,

But if I keep pushing forward, I will not let my passion and drive diminish.

I know it won't be easy and this is a fight that I have to fight on my own,

Because this time it is under my control, and I am in the zone.

From now on, all the people who are doubting my or trying to bring me down will have no power over me,

Because I will work twice as hard, and I will not talk about my goals, but I will make them all see.
