A Poem – Week Forty-Eight

This poem, written on November 18, 1996, is a companion piece to the recently posted poem, Self-Hate.


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 long into the night

I’ll never stop trying

To do what is right

Trying to find the mountain top

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

And I’ll never stop

Trying to be all that I can be.
