Keep Going

We're so worried with what will become of us; we lose sight of what's there.
The fear is similar and the circumstances repeating themselves.
Fighting for a cause going in circles with what appears to be getting nothing done.
We don't see the growth because we're living it.

Every new experience a metamorphosis.
So illusioned with the idea of love we lose sight of loving.
Caught up in our own mess.
Hiding the monsters that live inside.
Sometimes we have control other times it's a plague.
Challenging the individual to live.

There are people in life who give us hope and bring us joy.
Those are the ones we shouldn't take for granted and yet we do.
Dad you taught me to work hard for what I want.
Mom you taught me forgiveness is necessary despite the pain.
My opposite you've helped carry me through these past eleven years of beautiful moments and struggles.
My teacher, you taught me to continue to fight for all the hard work I've done.
Thanks to you I made the choice to continue my education and go to college.

I will continue to fight the monsters that lie within and persevere through the doubts.
I will continue to challenge myself.
The monsters can only drag me down as much as I let them.
Although at times I feel as if I’m exploding, the hope you’ve instilled within me carries me through.

Water is blissful but it's not always pure.
The mind is marvelous but not always true.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
