Ode to My Opressors

Wed, 06/25/2014 - 18:18 -- ada605

I praise you for many things

I praise you for beating me down

For I have gotten back up

I praise you for telling me I will be nothing

For I believe I am going to be something

I praise you for trying to destroy my dreams

For now my dreams are no longer deferred

I praise you for the cruel things you've said to me

For now I am glad to be me

I praise you for underestimating me

For now I have the strength to succeed

I praise you for your immorality

For now you have inspired me

I praise my oppressors for they have given me the chance

to follow my dreams and find the real me
