I Am...

Being hit or kicked?
An orphan or rich?
None of those describes me
Sunshine and rainbows?
Not me either.
Low self esteem?
Now ya talkin'
I am that girl who was bullied in class
I am the girl who cried at night because I thought I wasn't pretty enough
I am that girl!
However I've became that girl who self determination to succeed in life is bigger than the galaxy.
I was once the girl who doubted her future. But now I'm chasing my dreams in my confident brown skin.
My past has made me who I am right now.
I am Daja, a girl who won't stop until I reach my goals of graduating college, being successful, and being genuinely happy.
