I Am... Here to Stay

Always judging, never pleased

With who I am, my happiness seized. 


To one I am incapable

Such negativity inescapable. 

To another I am a viscious enemy

Criticisms weighing down heavily. 


Let it keep my dreams from become a reality?

Surrender to the constant brutality? 


To fullfill my will

Positivity I now must instill.




I am courageous.

Passion so great, it is o' so dangerous. 

I am blessed. 

Armor of strength in which I am dressed.

I am ambitious. 

The taste of victory overwhelmingly delicious. 

Most importantly, I am flawed. 

Mistakes made, that get no applause. 


So judge you may, 

For I am here to stay.
