Rising Above the Words


They said I wouldn’t amount to anything.
They said my future wasn’t bright.
They said I wouldn’t graduate high school.
They said I wasn’t worth much.

But then one day someone believed in me.
Someone saw my worth and spoke it into me.
Individuals supported me, loved me, and told me I could do anything.

Today I know my future is bright. I graduated, I am living out my calling, and I am happy. I am amounting to something.

Thank you to that someone who saw my worth, and took the time to care for me.
