Latishia Johnson


You gave me the strength
to get up when i fall down,

You gave me the strength
to pull myself through whatever
was holding me back,

You gave me the strength to
believe in myself when no one
really did.

You gave me the strength,
when all i wanted to do was cry,

You gave me courage when i
didnt have the guts to speak my mind to
others who were hurting me,

You gave me the courage
when i didnt want to stand up
for what was right and wrong.

You believed in me when people
told me I was nothing,

You believed in me when i said
i cant do something,

You kept me strong when
i felt like no one understood me,
