Freedom Writer Re-creation Poem (my version)

A girl torn between two worlds.

A young girl held to high standards.

Looking to gain approval.

On her first day of school, they say to be the best,

to never give up and never rest.

A teenager is what she is now, understanding how to play the game,

everyday floats by never changing, always the same.

A girl torn between everyone’s expectations, and her own.

They say they are here, but she’s never felt so alone.

She goes through life wondering who they want her to be,

only to realize that it doesn’t matter.

She is slowly finding herself amongst the waves.

That girl is no-more; she’s changed.

She’s found her own way through all their lies and pain.

No longer concerned with the ways of this game.

I’m on my own path now with nothing to lose,

Only things to gain.
