Dear Future me,
At the age of 16 I was stabbed in my lung
Where Im from most die by the gun
Laying in the hospital for 2 weeks, I could barely sleep
My life flashes before my eyes as my rem begins to peak
Feeling alone in a room full of friends
Again and Again it replays in my head how my life could’ve end
How could you do this to my when I only want to help others
6 boys and 1 girl I came to far to disappoint my mother
Almost 3 weeks pass and I’m fresh out the hospital and I’m free at last
Returning to the same neighborhood, dam feels like I’m stuck in my past
Everyone telling me be strong but I feel so weak
My mind racing but physically I can’t breath
Everyday im fighting poverty and my peers
I feel like everyone is against me I even have to fight back my tears
A year left til I graduate, College is my only key to escape
Dear God I pray that I hear my calling and its not to late.
If this finds you in time and you made it out.
Continue to survive, we already achieved our biggest obstacle and that was to find a way out.
