    I finally made it, the grade school journey is over
    No more underpaid teachers glaring over my shoulder
    No more getting yelled at for not doing my job
    No more cluttered hallways full of angry mobs

    No more early morning wake up calls
    No more dirty, vulgar words in bathroom stalls
    No more people begging for the simplest supplies
    No more noise related headaches adding to my demise

    Now I’m on my way to college, a place where dreams come true
    And how things shall come out, I haven’t got a clue
    But they said I could make it if I took this step
    Stayed focused and on task and took my learning in depth

    So far I have lived my life as pure as I could
    So hopefully things will turn out good
    I want to have a job that helps me live content
    No worrying about the bills and how to pay my rent

    I wish to have kids that are healthy as can be
    And to have a supportive husband who will forever love me
    But that’s in the long term future; my education is in the short
    As with my previous education I will continue to try my best
    All I can do is try and pray I pass the test

    Well sista if you've went through all that in the first part of the poem then you've already passed the test. So you should look at college as your opportunity for extra credit! But do give yourself credit and the powers that be for coming thus far. It will give you strength for the challenges to come and help you dust your shoulders off when the storms come. Remember you never know how strong a pole is until you knock it down a couple of times. All that matters in the end is that you can stand it back up. The same goes for us we just have to stick with it. Goodluck in the future & May the Force be with you sista!
