I Am.... Scholarship Slam

I Am

Strengthening myself day by day.

Slowly regaining self-confidence. 

Making myself a strong young woman. 

Growing up in the world of a man.


Raised on a farm. 

Treated like an object. 

But becoming stronger than them. 

Stronger than their words


Holding my head up high. 

Striving to do my best. 

Not letting anyone bring me down. 

Ignoring their actions. 


Picking up the broken pieces,

Of who I used to be. 

And moving on,

From my past that hurt me. 


Learning to live and forget. 

Learning from past mistakes. 

Learning from experience. 

Learning to be the best.
