Written by Keri on Monday, July 2, 2018

You think you know who I am.

What I do. What I represent.

I see the way you look at me.

You don’t think I see you?

But you don’t know me.

Let me repeat: You. Don’t. Know. Me.

Where I’ve been.

What I’ve done.

What I do every. damn. day.

How hard I fight.

How hard I work.

Clawing my way to where I am now.

Despite what people might have said.

Despite what people might have thought.

So your thoughts?

That I can’t. That I won’t. That I’ll never make it.

I could give a shit.

Go ahead.

Underestimate me.

Make your assumptions.

Put me in that box of yours.

And I’ll kick down those sides.

Push me down.

And I’ll stand up and dig in.

I don’t wilt. I don’t fade away.

It’s going to take more than your noise.

But you know what I love?

That you just don’t know.

I have one thing to share.

My battle cry. My anthem.

Every time you think I can’t

I say, with quiet confidence--

Try me.

I don’t need you to believe in me.

I believe in myself--

Try me.

I’ve fought that inner voice for too long.

I don’t have time to listen to yours.

I’m too busy becoming better.

You don’t believe me?

Try me.
