Thanks For Nothing

I made it 

I was that statistic 

you doubted

the kid who never felt your praise

when you showered it

i know i wasnt a star student

but i was smart

you just never gave me the chance

to show it

probably assumed i'd get pregnant

but i was just pregnant with knowledge

craving education

you never really fed right

i ended up feeling strife towards you

because i thought you shouldve 

encourage me

inspired me

to aspire me  

to want more

but i should still thank you

because your stereotyping 

made me prove you wrong 

and realise your resistance to help

was the real world

because not everyone is here to help

but i 

struggled

and i

strive

to come out

succeeding

so thank you

for not

caring
