not what you think I am.
My facade is placid, but there's a whirlwind of thoughts spinning in my head.
I have opinions, just like everyone else.
In fact, I think the world is cruel.
(Yes, yes, strong words, I know, "I think.")
We are forced to believe that how one does in high school determines his or her future.
But I CAN be successful without letting a number on a transcript define me.
I CAN make friends without drinking until I pass out every Friday night.
I CAN wear clothes that are way too colorful for the human eye.
I am so much more than what they want to believe.
I can be the benefactor of my dreams,
the musician of my hopes,
the inventor of my own ideas.
I am a person of substance.
I AM the future,
whether I am a doctor
or an artist.
I am unstoppable.
I am wildfire.
