I wake up every morning,

Weather its hot

Weather its cold.

my arms are heavy

my legs are heavy

but still,

I get up dressed and ready for school.

Dedication fires me up,

and pushes me to live.

It allows me to strive for success,

to be organized,

and always on time.

Without dedication

I wouldn’t be where i’m at now.

I’ve gotten this far,

while keeping

my eyes,

my body,

my mind

on the prize.

I have to get work done

essays done

Projects done,

I have to get everything done.

I won’t ever give up,

I won’t ever fail.

Dedication will allow me to survive,

And grind to the very top.

400 pound Steel plates

Will be the goal of a lifetime.

Dear Miguel,
I really enjoyed your poem. It shows what kind of person you are outside of school and how focused you are on your goals. The future holds many things and dedication is a good way to over come those things.

I like your poem because it was an intresting poem and showed me why you are the dedicated person that you say you are. I look forward to reading more from you in the future since you made a nice poem.
