    This piece is dedicated to all my brothers and sisters with a dream and is striving to make it a reality. Sister Destee I had you in mind while writing this you have inspired me to keep pushing.


    What God has for me it is for me.
    I’m not going to give it nor can anyone take it away.
    My dreams are mine they are what I want and desire;
    They can’t be bought not even if the price was higher.
    Hard work, sweat and tears I keep striving despite my fears.

    Got to keep going, got to push through;
    There is something on the inside I want to share with you.
    It’s about me because this is my dream.
    I’ve made the first step now my Father will make two,
    He has never failed me He has always came through.

    Through the toughest times when I felt alone,
    When nothing was left money and friends gone.
    I held on to my dreams, held on tight.
    Would get up with them at the sign of first light.
    Would go to bed with them at the going down of the same.
    It was real to me, not a game.

    Get out of my way don’t hinder me,
    Got to bring these dreams to life; don’t you see?
    Not another moment is going to pass me by,
    Where I can’t say that at that moment I didn’t try.

    Got to keep going, got to push through,
    I have something on the inside I want to share with you.

    This poem was very inspirationafl for me. Right before I read it my cousin was telling me that I need to stop chasing dreams and change my major from journalism to something thats more like a desk job because she said its something thats not a def but. This poem inspired me becausemy ambition and the fact that I get up and go to class and learn and live about my major shows how much ambition I have and how I will too make my dream a reality. Thanks for this.
