I am thankful for opportunity.

For the chance to be alive

To survive a heart surgery.
To be a voracious reader.
To work as hard as I possibly can.
To have a family.
To have my sisters.
To be the very best I can be.
To try new things.

Meet new people.

Make new friends.

But most of all,

Thank you to all the people who got me here. 

Thank you for the opportunity. 

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
Our world
