Ever changing into someone new

Must be life’s way of saying “boo!”

Out of the house and on my own,

I don’t want to take out another loan.

I’ll make things work.

I will not shirk

My duties while I’m here.


College life has been crazy.

I have no time to be lazy.

Between the classes and a job,

Sometimes I just want to sob.

Then I tend to realize

I know how to rise

Above any adversity.


Now with this experience

I’ve become more curious.

I just want to analyze

And see the world with fresh eyes.

I’m no longer hesitant

Since I’ve found this new element

Of my personality.
