My Inspiration, and So Much More
As I enter this new phase of my young adulthood,
my mother is the person that stands out the most.
My mother is my alarm clock. The noise maker that
gets me up in the morning every day, so I can get to
school on time.
My calendar that never forgets a date.
My food provider, preparing meals like breakfast and lunch
with no prevail.
My mother is strong, hardworking, determined and patient.
Qualities I see in her which inspire me to follow
in her footsteps.
The weekend is over. Now I need to get up and get ready for
my school day. A strong student can do it.
I arrive to school on time and with my homework done.
I am prepared and ready to participate in my classes and
extracurricular school activities.
I am focused and paying attention to the teachers’ instructions.
I am taking notes and keeping an organized work folder.
Now school is over and its aftercare time.
Where do I get find the strength and initiative to do homework?
I need to stay strong to finish this task. My mother tells me so.
I hear her voice and I get the homework done. Moving right along.
The road to achievement is a long one that requires patience and
hard work. Patience and determination will bring
rewards academically and socially, that voice tells me so.
Meanwhile as I transitioned from grade to grade, I kept working
hard and never gave up. When I returned to school after my summer
break, a goal was set. First quarter 8th grade marking period earn all As.
Make it happen and get it done, I kept telling myself.
High school test time is approaching. Now it’s time to get into the
studying gym with my motivator, my mom. The rest is history.
September 2020, I will attend my first high school of my choice,
Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, New Jersey.
