I take pride in where I come from,
I take pride in who I am, what I am
And who I am becoming.
My failures my biggest lessons.
My scars the reflections of my journey.
Many challenges I have faced, many more to be faced…
It is never easy but I embraced my world.

Very sure of what is left behind,
Sceptical about what’s ahead,
With my family by my side,
With my friends by my side,
Faith, Hope, Courage and Enthusiasm.
This tale called life is not that bad after all,
I am blessed to have been born.

Though grown, strong, independent and ready
I am not yet grown.
Though matured, I am still unripe.
With my pen in these bloodshot hands
Many more stories to write,
Thus I lie in my mother’s womb…
