Up & Out

By Alana W.
Grade 12, California

Hard to choose what to speak on;
Uncertain of what i should express.
My minds eye visualizes the pain, dishonor & lies.
But naw, after all's said & done, I see only my reprise.
People want to know me? What im all about?
Ok, Im seeking within & up, never down & out.
Worried that my future may fall back,
But NO. I cant regress, soon, im gone- im packed.
