“The Plain Truth” by Linda M. Crate

you told me

i would never make it,

and i have so far

to go;

but i’m not holding my breath

expecting you to believe in me

because i always had to believe in

myself and my dreams

before anyone else saw them come


just know that one day

the foundation of your cruel words

will be the stepping stones

to my success

as i prove you and everyone else who ever

doubted my wings wrong

because baby i was born to fly

higher than the highest skies

who are you to tell me the sky is the limit?

i am limitless,

and one day you will see this truth as

plain as the eyes on your face.
