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.

"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

My Cup Runneth Over?

Have you ever felt hunger in the pit of your stomach? You haven't eaten all day and you find yourself ravished? I had that feeling a few days ago and even now as I write this. I couldn't figure it out because I ate that day (a couple of times yay me!) but the hunger was still there. Today however I am choosing not to eat by choice. That's a completely different topic for another day.
