Speak

Thu, 04/07/2016 - 09:19 -- JadaC

Trying to be a voice to the voiceless while I'm still trying to find my own,

trying to give words to the speechless yet still trying to set the tone,

quiet but still outspoken, cracked but still unbroken,

rising up to be mature but still not fully grown,

somebody came and dropped the whole world in my hands and then told me to go for it,

no guidelines, no directions, just the advice to keep holding on

and one day I'll have something to show for it, show for it?, show for it?

Unscripted and unrehearsed but still probably easier to put on a show for it,

but I'm not an actor and this is not a play,

you can't predict what happens day to day,

so I have to try my best and just go with the flow

because life will keep going whether I say yes or I say no,

but I'm up for the challenge and I'll play the game,

but my mind has to change, I can't think the same,

I got to stay focused no matter what path I may choose

because I am a winner and I refuse to lose,

life is full of obstacles but will power makes it last longer,

it never got to me because I know that whatever doesn't kill me just makes me stronger,

I am strong and a warrior at heart,

I am full of power and I finish everything I start,

so no matter what comes up, I won't be full of strife,

I'll just keep being positive and choose to speak life.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
