Taken - Poem by Courtney Welden

You may have taken
All of me
But there is still one thing
I have that you don't

My dignity
You may have taken
The thing that meant the most to me
But I still have one thing

That you don't
A life
You may have taken
My good reputation

But I still got one
Thing you don't
A high school education
And I am not going to

Let what you did to me
Ruin my life and bring me down
Because I will live whether
I want to or not

So I took
Your dignity
But wait
How could I
You didn't have one
To begin with
