From the first day of stepping in the school,
I felt like my life was no longer important.
I didn't know anybody and most of the students ignored me.
A few months went by and I lost all of my tools.
She hit me with a light and taught me reinforcement.
Something that no one else could give and that's a guarantee.
She made me feel the love that I was looking for in my soul.
At this point my life was no longer black like coal.
I wrote and I wrote to express my pain.
And she would praise me as if I was an angel in the rain.
Her words would make me feel so perfectly insane.
I forever had her words implanted in my brain.
She's the reason I can sit here and be who I am today.
So thank you Mrs. Byrd for making sure that I was always okay.
