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.

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

Get Ready

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. 

Mental Health Pandemic

This is more or less an impulsive post. After many years, for the first time, I decided to watch Good Will Hunting. Of course, I'd seen it referenced in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but I'd never once actually seen the movie. I was quite shocked to see that Robin Williams was in this movie. Although the movie was an award-winning drama and was meant to play at your emotions, the entire time I couldn't help but feel saddened by the absence of Robin Williams in real life.
