To many years of doubt and disappointment.
To be here now and beaming with joy,
To understand that it was all worth it.
To be young, black, healthy, and employed.
To see change growth, development, and bliss.
To be moving in a positive direction.
To think back on every insult and diss.
To be able to look back in reflection,
To the late nights and early mornings.
To the loathing and self-hate.
To the visions and awakenings,
To purpose and the ability to create.
To be created for such a time.
To finally be at the finish line!
