Grades have forever defined me.
They no doubt made an effort to confine me.
But this year was the year they designed me.
A 30 on my ACT
FINALLY free college for me!
A chance for me to get to be
whatever I could want to be.
Grades have always held me down
I never got to look around
the weight of grades had potential to drown, me
look how grades have brought me up
they made me so that I am tough
I know now that life isn't about luck.
You must try
who you are
if you look around
you won't be far
from where you want to be,
