On Top of the World
I’m not a poet, but I have too say
Things that go on everyday in my life seems as if it’s a dream.
The constant struggle, torture and pain to survive.
Sometimes I just want to say, “Fuck it” but I continue to strive.
I put on a smile as if everything is okay, but I cry myself to sleep at night hoping for a stronger day.
School is stressful… sometimes I want to give up…I know that wont be the best thing.
I’m a young girl at 18 with dreams to be on top of the world.
But how can I do so when I feel everyone is against me?
I pray to God every night asking for strength, a miracle, heeling, asking that some of this weight be taken off of me immediately!
But do I give up?
Or do I continue too strive?
Because God blessed me with this thing called pride and it’s strong.
I try not to let anyone bring me down.
But it’s so hard when you around such a large crowd.
With negative vibes coming left to right.
But I’m ready to give a fight!
Because I’m going to be on top of the world
Thanking God for everything he has done for me.
Thanking him for setting me free!
I would have never thought I would make it…but I did.
I hung in there just like my ancestors did.
I made it!
I’m struggle free!
I’m pain free!
I did it!
Now, I can finally sit on top of the world.
