Last Year's effect

As I look back this past year

At my old reflection

I see a girl who was worried about what others thought of  her

A girl who did not care about politics because she thought it couldn't effect her

A girl who believed that no bad could happen to her

A girl who was not happy with herself

A girl who did not understand herself

A girl who wanted to belong but could not

Yes I was that girl

But I'm not that girl now

Time has changed 

I am a better me

I understand now who I am

I do not need to seek others validation

I define me nobody else 

The better me is intrested in politcs

I understand now that even though I am not able to vote the election will impact me 

With Donald Trump in office I am scared for minorties

I am Briyonna Taylor 

I am here to stick up for minorties
