"Everything happens for a reason."

That kid who given the chance
would run far, far beyond where the eyes can see
That kid who yearns to be free
yet endures the pain of being encaged
That kid who dreams about the day
when they can escape
Their problems left in the past
with their troubled family at last
That kid who stands up for themselves
and fights for change in their life
That kid who will rise up and break away
That kid who is inspirational
That kid who is the rising sun for so many people
If just given the chance,
that one kid could change the world

The author's comments:
My friend inspired this poem due to all of the troubles she must endure with her family. She always stand up to her inferiors when they threaten to hurt her. She is inspirational.
