Favorite Quote:
Horace Mann: “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.”


Look at me,
look me in the eyes and
tell me I"m not good enough,
tell me I'm no one.
There was a time when I would
surrender
to your belittling words,
let your hatred
poison me.
But that time has passed.
Go ahead, tell me now
how I'm worthless,
tell me I'm weak.
I'll show you just how
strong you've made me.


The author's comments:
This is a very personal piece that I wrote last year. I was a junior in high school, and for the first time in my life I felt empowered and confident in myself, in my abilities and my morals and my future.
