To My Beautiful young people-PLEASE READ

This post is dedicated to my family-Brian, Brittani and Destiny.  This blog is also  for my mommy Lynn, my woman, Ana, my besties Jess and Katie, and my long lost kid who I hope still has sense to read what I write-Leslie.  This post is for any man or woman who has fallen, who has been torn down, who has been hurt beyond belief.

Skies are crying
I am watching
Catching teardrops in my hands
Only silence as it’s ending, like we never had a chance
Do you have to, make me feel like there is nothing left of me?

[Chorus]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like i’m made of glass
Like i’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper!
Like a skyscraper!

[Demi Lovato]
As the smoke clears
I awaken, and untangle you from me
Would it make you, feel better to watch me while I bleed?
All my windows, still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

[Chorus]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am

Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper!
Like a skyscraper!

[Bridge]
Go run, run, run
I’m gonna stay right here
Watch you disappear, yeah
Go run, run, run
Yeah it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

[Demi Lovato]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper, Oh
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground

Like a skyscraper!
Like a skyscraper!

Like a skyscraper!
Like a skyscraper!

Pain is ridiculous.  When a heart hurts, it really hurts.  People judge based on so many things we can’t control.  As I am diving more into research, I learned about “positionality” from my class.    When we are who we are, there are parts of us that are identified that we cannot help.  I can’t help who I am.  I am a multiracial obese lesbian woman.  This may seem like nothing to some people, but those factors shape what I choose in my life.  I can choose to get married, but my identity doesn’t allow me to do so.  I have applied for a principal job, but my gender didn’t allow me to do so.  These are just small examples of me.  Who are you?  What are biases against you because of your positionality?  You can’t hep who you are, but you need to be the best with what was created for you.  Look at every aspect of your life and think of how you can use your examples and your life to stand higher than you were yesterday.  Use your strength to help others see that even when people try to bring you down, you will still stand.  Be a skyscraper in the midst of the negative actions and words.  I love all of you and I am proud of you.
