I AM

I am not what society wants me to be 

I'm not loud, ghetto, pregnant, and a "suppose to be".

I'm going to be greater than what everyone wants me to be. Life is a lesson and I'm not ready emotionally.

I turned my can and my cants into my plans and my dreams. My grandma tells me " Baby girl life aint all what it seems. I know somedays there is going to stressing strife but baby girl thats apart of living in the dangers of life."

Granny knew what she was saying. She gave me a hug and a kiss and said baby girl it's all in God's plan.

See I dream for perfection, in fear of rejection, craving just a little bit of affection.

Hoping good things will happen like the peace I pray, only thinking it won't happen someday.

It's just life itself in a world we think we know 

All i know is that i will not let what i cannot do effect on what i can do , because 

I AM GREATER THAN ALL THE ODDS AGAINST ME.

Me
