A poem – Week Five


This poem, written on November 18, 1996, was born of a desire for a better life.  I felt like people were holding me back and I needed to take control of my happiness.



Today’s the day

I’ll be all I can be

Today’s the day

I’ll stand up for me

No more falling

In the shadow trap

I’ll reach the top

And achieve my goals

I will never stop

Working as hard

As I can

Sometimes into the night

I’ll never stop trying

To do what is right

To find the mountaintop

Looking for the highest high

All the immature people and things

I will tell goodbye

I’ll be truly happy

I’ll see what there is to see

I’ll never stop

Trying to be all I can be.
