I am confined to chains


Dragging me down as I try to rise


Condemned from achievement


Anxiously filled with apprehension


Strenuously aware of a heavy burden


Finances constricting the ability to breathe


Overwhelming the ache of having to withdraw


From aspirations and new beginnings


From a vision many thought wouldn’t be


I am rejected


Aid falling through the cracks


Uncannily slipping from my grasp


I am kicked harshly while already down


Spat in the face with an uncanny reality


I am hardworking


Stubborn in my goals


And I will rise.


I am a girl hoping to further her education


I am a girl…taking a chance


And I will conquer
