A poem from my busiest days doubling as a courageous cancer patient & hardworking college student . . .
Sitting in class, I had an assignment to do:
Find a partner and start to interview.
I let my partner go first and talk about her life.
She grew up in a family of seven children, a husband and a wife.
Then it was my turn to start talking and go,
But how to define myself, I didn’t know.
I told my cancer battle, the first thing that came to mind,
But I shouldn’t focus on my illness alone, Sarah helped me find.
I have always loved writing stories, rhymes and such.
My early passion for basketball is also a subject I could touch.
I won the school spelling bee in fifth grade, I was no fool.
I again came in first place in seventh grade in middle school.
I won many scholarships to finance college for a significant time.
I was also given the talent to express myself through rhyme.
