My eyes close but I can’t sleep due to distractions
Knowing I did my all and now I must do better than that
Never giving up because a fact is a fact
I must learn what I need to know in order to grow
Education, determination, patience they can all be the key
I am who I dream to be and that’s better than me
Who I am?
The Dream chaser
Negative thought replacer
When you tell me I can’t I’ll take your truth
Prove and show how I can make new rules
They told me my future was destined but I showed them what I choose
I bring the light to the darkness of all lies
Who can tell me that I can’t survive?
If you thought I wasn’t going to achieve you had me mistaken
My dreams don’t stop playing and my mind is never complacent
This distant thought telling me to push forward, “Don’t stop, you have a lot of getting to be got”
My feet don’t stop moving my heart constantly pounding
Afraid to stop beating before I reach my peak
The educated and strong woman whom I dream to be
The pillar of my community the one who sets trends
I will be better than anyone can imagine.
As I drift off to sleep finally I can rest assured
I will be chasing my dreams for all my days forward.
