Beating the Odds


Diploma is the goal.
Her life was at stake.
She needed to fix her parents mistakes.
She was the golden child. Growing up in a dark past,
lit her passion for class.
She would never kick her down just ask what drives her.
She will never let anyone stop her from striving to be the best.
Test after test,she will disprove the rest.
She won't be another statistic.
OF a Broken home kid.
Drug addiction that inflicted both parents.
