-& iStandd ALONE !,,


Grateful I am
I was raised in a home that had
Rules, from cleaning up to helping
Where you had to behave and do chores
Where sharing is caring,

I was raised in a city where


Crimes are an everyday thing.
Where you see crackheads walking
Up and down streets,
Around schools, around playgrounds
They barely have energy in their feet
I am GRATEFUL,
To overcome all the above


Where I’m from if someone bother you
Stand on your own two feet and
Defend yourself
I am from play the game, don’t get played
I was taught that education
Is the key to SUCCESS !

I am grateful to know
right from wrong, to take
responsibility for my actions
and to ALWAYS SAY NO TO DRUGS !

I am grateful to be a STRONG
INDEPENDENT African American Young Lady,
To have a mother to say

“clean” up or “wash clothes”




I am grateful to have a bed to

Go to every night

I am grateful to be able to go to bed

With a full stomach



We should all be grateful

To be able to wake up to a

Roof over our head
I am grateful to say

Thank You God For Watching

Protecting Me From This ColdHearted World,
Kilaua Ingram
