Am I the girl you know today?
Day in day out I’m in dismay
Not once have I been confident
But a girl who knew her way
I wish you all could see the fight I have in me
Yet I am here to stay, to go on and I pray
But the question still stands do I go on?
Or do I search for a peaceful get away?
I long for society to see the good I have in me
The burning I hold within will not cease
For water will not quench my thirst
But help it grow till it’s seen
My final desire is what keeps me going
The need to push forward and be strong
People may not see me but I am high sprung
The given talent that we have is in us
As an individual please stand your ground
The fight is not over but don’t let it go to waste
Violence is not the answer vocabulary is the way
My hope is still strong but my light is gone
I will keep on dreaming, pursuing, succeeding
I will remember myself before I am lost
I wish to strive and persevere
And I know the road is not too far along.
