I will be on top of my game
I will stand out and not just fit in
I will be the greatest influence
I will take charge of my life
I will go the for best and not settle for less
I will step up and take my throne
I will positively pressure my peers
I will leave common behind
I will reject commonality
I refuse to be ordinary
I refuse to be regular
I will distinguish myself
I will elevate my thinking
I will set the rules
I will recreate the norm
I will devastate mediocrity
I will not cheat
I will not take short cuts
I will make the grade
I will take responsibility for my actions
I will lead the way
As much as I attempt to calm the chaos around me called life,
I can only control myself.
However, I have been told countless times that I am
Intelligent, courageous, strong and beautiful
So from this moment on, ever indelible mark I make
Upon myself or my community will embody a piece of me.
This indelible mark will embody intelligence, courageousness,
Strength and beauty because they are what make ME!
