To: The People Who Said I Couldn't Make It

It's how flowers are viewed that makes them wild,
not the place, not the name, not the family;
no, it's the observers.

And when I discovered poetry of nonconformity,
the idea of self-discovery finally struck me;
I realized what I wanted to do.

Now, whenever you break me down,
I remember my ancestors didn't go through
a struggling history for me to be treated like this.

So I just keep pushing through to prove
how far I made it and that I love doing it;
thank you, for doubting me so I could keep going.
Sorry this isn't as "epic" as some of my other poetry, but it's all I could think of for the prompt.

    So I'm a pretty flower and you're a wild one? Sure. (Whoops that sounds sarcastic--it's not) Cool piece!
