    I look forward To
    Finishing college

    Earning my BA Degree
    I look forward to accomplishing my dreams

    Learning how to do all those many things
    That require skill and discipline

    I look forward to being focused
    Enough
    To encourage myself
    To do the best that I can

    I look forward to finding new ways to make more money
    I look forward to buying my own house one day
    I look forward to going by any means necessary

    To find my true potential
    And see the things that have been in my heart for a long time
    To feel a sense of accomplishment

    That one day
    I can bring
    To any man or woman
    Friend or foe
    Company or organization
    Any kind of relations
    I look forward to being able to be so much more

    Maybe it's just sheer will and determination
    But my eyes are fixed on

    Fixed on
    That dream
    Not necessarily the American Dream

    Where you want the white picket fense
    And the children playing in the front yard with the dog
    And to have the Betty Crocker life style
    In a black and white type of scene

    No its a quality of life
    That I look forward to

    I look forward to coming into my own door
    And taking my shoes off
    With my own hard wood floors
    And my own kitchen


    I look forward to my own vision
    Where I am complete
    With or without someone to acknowledge me

    I look forward to writing through lifes experiences
    I can be anonymous
    No one even has to know that I exist
    Shall I insist?
    As I go down my list of, I wants?

    I

    W

    A

    N

    T

    TO

    FEEL

    FREE

    AND

    HAPPY

    AND

    N

    My dream is of a completely whole woman, yes colored
    My dreams are to beat the odds stacked up against
    My dreams are to defeat this enemy
    That lies to me and belittles me
    Telling me that what I can only become is what I've been or whose I been
    My dream is of me as a person
    My dream is to see my creativity
    Realizing my true identity
    Not the identity of me to you or you to I
    Or what I've become to who?

    And be completely satisfied with me
    Knowing that

    I've done what has been in my heart to do

    With my own wheels

    And my own skills

    Not having to

    Compromise myself anymore

    I look Forward To ....


    Just

    Being

    Who

    I

    Am

    FREELY...

    Knowing who I am
    Is knowing who you are

    You know you deserve the best, and you want to strive for that, to be the best "you" you can be. Hey, I know it will happen. Such an encouraging write.
