Letter Of Recommendation

I'm trying to get admission
But my credits fall just shy
So much time devoted
Wait listed I wonder why
Did I miss some history
Fall short in chemistry
Eclipsing mystery
Why acceptance keeps missing me
Don't need much accommodation
Can I get a letter of recommendation?

I've taken many classes
In life skills I got schooled
I had some hard lessons
Passed
Then flunked for being fooled
Insecurities 
Keeping me from my full capabilities
Fallacious arrogance
Letting these teachers mislead me
Such a smart girl
The world should be amazed
Your spontaneity 
Creativity
You've got the fire to set the world ablaze
Now Here I am at graduation
And all I can say
Could you write what you just said
In a letter of recommendation one day.

Guess the time I've spent learning
Ain't enough to be
Considered for higher learning
Since so many rejections come to me
High school was easy
Had it all figured out
Now when it's on to college
Guess I'm just a college drop out
I've made mistakes before
Can't promise I won't make them again
I'm just looking for a recommendation
Not an excuse
A pass
Or an easy way in
I'm just looking for the chance to redeem myself my friend.

I was walking at work one day when I heard a small still voice say "get ready". It stopped me in my tracks because there was no one else around other than myself. Get ready? Get ready for what? "Get ready". In my heart, I knew what it meant but I was and somewhat am not so much reluctant but anxious about what was ahead of me. 

Me Too Transparency

I want to be able to say that I've never been out and out raped, but at the end of the day no means no and I said it; I said no. It's moments like those that live in your mind and don't go away. You keep replaying them until you've

Holes In The Wall

I wish this were my wall. I want so badly to just punch and punch and punch until every emotion, every hurt is gone from my body. The realization that today a year ago was the last time I spoke to Justin has set in and I haven't been able to stop crying. There is no bad to remember. Only good, and the more I focus on remembering the good and trying to find peace within it the more pain I feel. I've come full circle with my grief and I'm stuck at anger. I want to understand. I want to know why. I need to know why, and the answer is just not there. Why can't I just grieve on the one day? The day he died? Why must I cry now?

I'm so guilt-ridden for all the things I didn't do when I had the chance. I'm guilt-ridden for loving so soon after his death. I feel like there should have been a time period in which I... I don't even know. At this point, I feel like pushing everyone away. Staying to myself and not letting anyone in. Not just temporarily but permanent…
