There is something great inside, just waiting to be released

Something great no one will ever expect from a person like me

Statistics say African American girls begin corruption at age 16

Here I stand 18 and corruption free

The world says there’s no hope for my generation

Yet here I stand graduating on time with plenty of accolades

I am standing to defy the odds

To prove the rumors wrong

To let the world know there is hope for todays young adults

And to let my peers and the ones looking up to me know that anything is possible

To let them know they don’t have to be what the world says they have to be

Cause regardless of what the world says I’m gone make it and they can too

Cause deep down inside they posses the power and the strength to do anything and be anything, they just need to tap into it

So here’s to my generation, I stand for us

We are everything they told is we could not be
