Chasing My Strength

I am worthy.

I am outspoken.

I am determined.

I am beautiful.

I am strong.

Then Valencia fades out,

I am the product of a broken family.

A mother chasing a lover;

A father chasing money.

I am quiet just as I was told,

When I lost my innocence.

I am fighting to get the grades

When the darkness I harbor,

Desires otherwise.

I am STRONG.

That I know.
