I'm Trying.

What more do you want from me?

Can't you see I'm trying my hardest?

I'm trying to make something of myself.

I know nothing is promised and I may not be the fastest.

I know my attempts have not resulted in any form of wealth.

What more can I do to prove to you that this is what I want?

I can see you are finding it difficult to get past this.

You think there is more I can do to help myself.

You can see that I'm struggling; I never tried to mask this.

I want you to understand that this is something I must do for myself.

But all that I will ask for you is,

I hope that one day you will believe in me.

Believe in everything that I am trying to accomplish.

You don't have to necessarily agree with me.

But I promise that one day both you and the world will be astonished.

And on that day hopefully you will be able to see the drive in me.

Hopefully you will be able to see the fight in me.

Hopefully you will see the person that I am trying to be...come.

And all I will want you to say is,

"Kela Lewis-Morin, that's my son".
This is something I wrote this morning whilst thinking about the people in my life who are justifiably doubting what I am trying to do. Just needed to get this off my chest and I thought I would upload it. I hope this works and I hope it is not to cliche or soppy or sad. This is just me and I want to make it as an author and writer so badly. Let me know what you think guys :)
