Confessions of a Hopeful Teen

I have a dream

Burning in my heart

For a future

That sets me apart

From the confusing family

That gave me my start.

I plan to have more

Because I know I’m smart.

I don’t have to live defeated

And crushed beneath life’s cart.

I have what it takes

To rise up and depart

The constraints of those

Who only have negativity to impart.

Because in have a dream

Flickering in my heart

I shall live and not die

Until I finish what I start.

I will win this fight

Against the shadows in the dark

I won’t succumb to dread

And the pain of its arrows and darts

Because there is a dream

Shining in my heart.
