Ode to New Beginnings


Embrace the new beginning,

being a first generation college student is going to war with no training

It is exciting yet sad

not many to guide you through, you're the first !

arrival at the university made me feel as though I was a clear glass

Who do I turn to ? Where do I start?

Worrying would be like a sensitive tooth, trying to get that cold bite...I'm scared

Everything is as clear as a dirty mirror, but I have to become comfortable 

with being uncomfortable- someone has to be the first, so I guess it'll be me

Besides, I have younger siblings looking up to me

I shall inhale, exhale, and embrace this new beginning !
