My Life Has Made Me Strong

By Shalanda A.

My life has made me strong

Struggles all day long

People tell me I’m doing it all wrong

Blissful ignorance was my favorite song

while I hit that bong

and played a game of beer pong.

Finally like someone hitting a gong

I realized all along

that I was being a ding dong—

and now I am learning to be strong!

And how to be right where before I was all wrong!
