“Unbreakable”
By Sydnee Torrence

I know what I want
No one can discourage me.
People try to bring me down constantly.
I seem to manage to fight my way through
And hold my head up confidently.
I am not going to let them get the best of me,
Because I don’t want to see them succeed,
At trying to bring me down
No matter how hard you try,
You will not win this battle,
So you might as well give up,
Because I am unbreakable.
Who am I?
I am me.

I rise above all the rest
And continuously strive to do my best.
I will let nothing stand in my way,
Because I know where I want to be,
At the end of the day.
I will do whatever it takes,
To bring my haters to shame.
Because I don’t want them to have the satisfaction,
Of getting me off my game.
I am focused on my goals
And I know that I want to be successful.
I know it kills you inside to see me,
Becoming what you don’t want me to be,
But I’m sorry to say you’re not stopping me,
Because I am Unbreakable.
Who am I?
I am me.

People seem to mistake my
Kindness for a weakness.
Some people may think it’s okay
To come at me wrong,
But let me just tell you,
I am strong.
When people first meet me
They like to test me,
Because they think I will let it go,
But I will let you know,
You won’t be successful,
Because I am Unbreakable.
Who am I?
I am me.

Haters will hate everyday
They’ll do it from near,
They’ll do it from far,
Just to break you down,
But you have to look in a mirror and
Look at who you are,
And say,
This is me,
I’m not going to let them
bring me down,
I am going to succeed
No matter what it takes
I will reach my dreams
Because I am unstoppable,
Because I am Unbreakable.
Who am I?
I am me.
