A Poem by Bella Dyer, Berkshire Center Student
Do you need this?
yes, i need this
i need Jesus
sittin here thinkin to myself, yes, i gotta start believin’
I gotta start changin’
thinkin about the goals i gotta start arrangin
and achieve them
Stop all the madness and stop grievin’
i gotta prove them all wrong so they can start truly seeing
Think of all the people that live in poverty
Do you ever think about life living in the perfect economy
I look at it logically, lets face it do you think only one person can
make a change and erase it.
People say they cant change, thy can try, but can they truly remain?
do you think you can change, or will you be the same?
How do you figure, consider yourself a winner, don’t stress, or you’ll
be more of a mess, keep your head up high stay focused
and you can be the best
I pray to god give me a blessin
so I can learn these important daily lessons
and pass these tests, cuz god made me fully bless’d
I know I’m not alone, but we all gotta learn to do it all on our own
I gotta make a fold, cuz we all make mistakes and pay the toll
Yes, god made me a miracle
so as a result, I was born to be truly spiritual
I’m a leader, but some say I’m a follower

I’m aware, yes I can change. I can win that race faster than the

I dont have to worry anymore cuz I’m opening a new door in my life
I can pick up my feet I dont have to strife
look forward, don’t look back instead forgive and try to forget all the
things you did that made you regret.
I made mistakes that were truly wrong, but now I believe its time to
It wont happen overnight, so its gonna take long. Dont rush, take
babysteps, take a deep breath.
Like I say, if you believe, you can succeed.
Know the difference between your wants and what you really need
I know I got impulses, but look I’m not a diamond, I aint flawless
I’m cautious, more cautious than I was before, trying to fly high,
trying to fly by, I aint gonna cry so don’t follow that gray sky
Smile, it aint gonna rain cuz I’m bouts to shine.
I don’t care anymore at how I’m treated, and I aint tryin to seem like
I lied and I cheated, but take a good look at me now, and best believe
it cuz now I’m succeeding
