To be the first,
What a wonderful thought.
To be the first in a family,
Oh how much has been fought
To achieve something my family has not.
“You can do it” constantly playing in my mind
“Nothing can stop you as long as you believe”
But I knew so little and was so blind.
To be the first is so beautiful but so difficult
So difficult to achieve the highest result
But to be the first, is a lonely ride
To be the first to learn about applying, loans,
Payment plans, acceptance, and denies
But this ride has grown me.
This ride that I’ve had to partly do alone
Has made me the woman I am today.
College, adulting and life will not lead me astray
It has only allowed for me to find my zone.
