Caring Individual

Longs for education

My heart is residual

              And doesn’t need interpretation

              For I must do everything and anything for myself

              I mustn’t sit around like a used book on its shelf

              For those nights I long to have more,

              Do more,

             And be more

             Than I was.

              I have to remember that I did not get here just because;

              I got to where I am today not just because I’m strong

              But because I’m motivated to have what I wanted all along

              To love gives me joy

              To learn gives me hope

               That whatever tomorrow brings will finally be enough.
