4 years ago i thought,

"i will never make it",

i almost gave up,

but instead i faked it,


I was so depressed,

nothing inside,

but my friends gave me hope,

and i decided to try,


i left my old school,

too much negativity,

went somewhere new,

and it was better for me.


I found so much more,

a new purpose to find,

i walked out the door,

with a new outlook on life.


I never once thought,

i would make it this far,

graduating high school,

made me feel like a star.


My advice to you,

is it takes faith,

never give up,

make a change.
