You Have Been Accepted

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

but now


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

to be

who you are

if you look around

you won't be far

from where you want to be,

a star
