As I stare at the empty skies,
I hear myself amidst the solitude of night.
I close my eyes and think deep
About my faith and identity at risk.
I am caught in the whirlwind of emotions,
Fear, anger, desire and ambitions.
My heart and mind are at constant war
And I seek solace from my despair.
I wish to prove my worth,
But I believe there’s a lot to put forth.
I know it is a long way to go
And everyday I must put on a new show.
Convictions are my only strength
That I have always been asked to defend.
My will grown stronger than my fears,
It’s been a long journey over the years.
I aim to rise above the crowd,
So let me cry it clear and loud.
Someday I will find my way,
“She has got it”, then they will say.
