Do not limit me,
I was not given these aptitudes to be restrained.
Do not underestimate me,
I am capable of more than you know.
Do not stifle me,
I am trying to grow.
Do not simplify me,
I am complex and innovative.
Do not undervalue me,
I am powerful and strong.
Do not dismiss me,
I was given a voice in order to be heard.
Do not tame me,
I am young, I am wild, and I am free.
Do not categorize me,
I cannot be bound by your classifications
Do not stereotype me,
I am unique in mind, body, and soul.
Do not overlook me,
I am the future.
I blossom from your recognition.
I need to know I am not alone.
I am an adolescent and I am on to great things.
