So many times throughout my life, I’ve been the underdog;
Problems plagued my efforts, causing me to work through fog.
But at my core, I had the motivation to do my best;
That, along with mentors–strong, was enough to pass the test.
As I grew into the woman I was meant to be,
Some recognized that I had leadership abilities;
Me, a leader, really; There must be some big mistake.
But a leader I became, and my insecurities I forsake.
So many times it takes a while to see a flower bloom,
But don’t give up, keep watering, and it will blossom soon.
