A Different Story

No one understood my pain during college

But the knowledge and the friends I made got me through

When I changed my major I did it for several reasons

They were really deeper than I thought

I did the unthinkable and rebelled against one of my teachers

She had no idea part of it was an issue I have struggled with

For awhile which is having a reliable car another is it

Wasn’t my passion I finally stood up and gave in to my own

Expectations and followed my dreams locally like when my

Mother said to me bloom where you are planted

Todays poetry contest submission was written by Haven Wray.


Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems of 2013?
