BEEP. BEEP. BEEP
That's my alarm for me to get up and start the day.
I wake up at 5:30 am
And for what?
Because I know I have to be grateful to wake up at all.
Grateful that I can go to school even though I'm female.
Grateful that I can go to school even though I am African.
Grateful that I can go to school and make my family PROUD of me.
I also have to represent black exellence and do what my mother couldn't
GO TO COLLEGE
So that's why I wake up so early in the morning
So I can remind myself to be grateful
Represent my black brothers and sisters
Get my diplomas
And finish what my family started.
