My Legacy

As I walk across that stage,

when they call my name.

I want to be remembered 

for the girl who changed.

The amount of hurt that I have endured,

 is nowhere close to equivalent 

the love I have been insured.

I've been bullied and picked on,

called names and pushed down,

but  I have risen up victorious

and I stand tall wearing the crown.

Over the years, I have grown

into a bright young woman.

Finishing in a state much stronger

than where I first began.

I will go on to attend college

and finally earn my degree.

For I have truly changed

and I want the world to see.
