To Claim my Name

October 4, 2014

Claim my Name
Life had been rough,
the obstacles I endured were tough.
But now I am here for the revolution,
And trust me, I am working on a solution.
I have realized what I am capable of
and the hard work I have put in.
To be where I am now,
I sometimes still wonder, how?
But I am here and working hard
I have been long and far.
But I'm here to stay,
 This may all sound so cliché.
I have arrived,
I have lived and survived.
The past is behind
and it's my time to run like the wind,
to soar and rise.
There will be lows and highs
but I will fight and go down in a flame,
because I'm here to claim my name.

                                                                        Sincerely,
                                                                            Aishah
