Who I Am Today

No hope for intelligence

Grades seemed like a doomed allegiance

My mind merely divergent

My worries flow like laundry detergent 

Once a weak link

Now I've learned how to think

Problems no longer complicated

Myself no longer deemed hated

Hope and faith now long since restored

My happiness and love publicly adorned

World once so bleak, now so bright

A darkness that once surrounded me, now drowned by light

Graduation now tightly in hold

That is my goal, the winning chance to reach the gold
