I want to do ballet.
NO. You’re not flexible enough.
I want to do beauty pageants.
NO. You’re not near attractive.
I’ve made six A’s and one B this quarter.
If you don’t have straight A’s then it means your dumb.
Ok, you’re right.
I always want to strive to the top as my mother would tell me to do
But what’s holding me back to push through?
Me, myself and I
Just me, myself, and I
How do I win the war against myself?
By simply listening and reading the words of the Lord
I am beautiful and determined; I am me, not someone else.
For it is he who taught me to open my wings and soar
I am going to the University of Florida
NO. You’re not smart.
YES. I am because I have been accepted and will be attending.
You will be nothing but failure in the future.
NO. Everything I do and accomplish is because of the Lord, the drive for my mother, and more importantly because I learned how to carry my head high and believe.
I fought and won,
I was once overwhelmed, lost, and confused
For the race was a sustained and tedious run,
The New Me is strong and can no longer be abused.
