Dear life to be lived

Dear life to be lived you’re a stranger

The life I have lived left me numb

Beatings and insults brought anger

But t’was when I gave up that they won


Dear life to be lived am waiting

To see you outside my dreams

To utter the words “I can do it”

Without the snickers or screams


Dear life to be lived you are here now,

Elixir of shock and success,

Who knew all my fears could sated

By a cap, piece of paper and dress


Dear life I have lived I’ll forget you

No one will know, even I

“Hopeless” and “homeless” now stricken,

My story reads “Alumni”
