i'm the little girl hiding behind her mother's legs
i wonder if i'll be able to fight the monsters off without my dad by my side
i hear the music notes brush past the tree leaves
i touch the hearts of people with my voice
i see my dreams getting closer as i fight forward
i want to make my parents proud
i am a human fighting her fears.
I pretend to know what i want to do with my life
i feel lost and confused as i get closer to reality
i fear of failing to make myself happy
i worry of letting my fears grow stronger than me
i cry in secret, so i don't worry those who care
i am surrounded by expectations.
i understand that my actions affect others
i say i know what i'm doing, but i don't
i dream of making a positive difference on many lives
i try to keep positive and do my best
i hope i don't stand in the way of my happiness
i know i'm only beginning my journey in life
i am Leslee Jannice Perez.
