You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
Marian Wright Edelman

I don't have a cute action phrase,
Or colorful detatchable clothes.
I don't live in a doll box.
Or do commercials and shows.
I am not made of plastc,
or do whatever you please.
I am not at your local store,
or perform for your entertainment needs.
So take me as I am,
Or just leave me alone.
If you want me the way you want me,
You have me all wrong.
I Am Me.
Blessed and Free.
Living life the best it can be.

This is a piece I wrote when I was in about the 5th grade. That was the year people started to change and I began to see who really was and wasn't there for me.

‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

Sometimes, I hate people too. When I reflect on my elementary years, a feelings of nostalgia and regrets mixed together to knock at my heart. I don't think it's good... :(

Good poem...
