I Am Black

I Am A Girl

I Grew Up, Without A Father And A Mother

I Once Was Worthless

I Once Was A Mistake

I Once Was Helpless, Left Alone Many Days

Father Dead

Mother On Drugs 

I Once Blamed God

I Once Let These Things Bother Me 

I Once Use To Cut

I Am Older, 17 To Be Exact 

I Look At Things Differently

I Don't Blame Anyone For My Life, I Thank God Everyday For Letting Me Make It 

I Am No Longer Worthless, Useless, Or A Mistake As They Use To Say 

I Will Not Be A Statistic, I Will Make It 

I Did Not Let These Life Events Make Me

You Can Label Me As Strong

And If You Turn That Dictionary Page To The S's There You Will See Me
