i am... Martinaé Patton.
i am... The woman that has made mistakes, the woman that has what it takes to change the world.
i am Trayvon Martin or could've been, but God let me live.
i am alive to serve a purpose, although the path is not clear,
i am twenty sum'n, so it's alright if I'm unsure, I have no fear.
i am my mistakes, I am learning.
i am my mental illness.
I am black, I am adversity in the flesh.
i am the the boundless potential that my ancestors did not see within themselves.
i am the future educator of the youth that will help perpetuate greatness amongst them and so on and so forth.
i am a gardener of the mental seeds planted in my brothers and sisters that will one sprout a magnificent forest in which we all will reap the benefits.
i am trying my best.
i am doing all that I can right here and now.
i am me.
