Conquer

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
