You can’t let anyone steal your dreams.
No matter how small they make you feel.
Everyone is a piece of this world.
I want to be the ripple that’s remembered.
The girl who swam against the current.
I don’t want to be the one who made only one choice.
I want to be the woman who held many paths without having to choose only one.
I want my arms and legs to be the branches reaching out to diversity.
I want to be the chance they said I’d never take.
