I’m more than a GPA,
More than a letter grade,
More than a SAT score,
More than a 500 word essay.
Nothing will be able to describe who I am
No college essays will tell you
That I love stargazing
Watching the distant worlds shimmer and shine,
That I love to run in the morning
My hair flowing with the gentle breeze,
That I come from a broken family
But hope to make a whole family of my own.
Where will you learn about the real me?
Not from the lies anyone can spin
About working for charity
And donating to the needy.
You can’t find real depth from an essay online
But you can in a living, breathing me
So let me show you what I’m worth
Instead of telling you what I could do.
Let me prove to you my inner beauty.
Let me show you the real me.
