I'm Just Me

Sat, 11/15/2014 - 19:33 -- xmetry


I wake up everyday with a smile on my face

Life is a race

I have been pushed around

People have tried to trip me up

But I always had belief in myself

It doesn't matter where you come from 

Or what you look like

I look in the mirror from time to time

Whenever I do, I am delighted with what I see

With hard work an eggplant can become a cucumber

With commitment a zebra can conquer a lion

I wake up every morning thankful for what I have been given

And I know in my mind that the next day will be just as good.

Always believe in yourself, because anything is possible with perseverance.
