OK

two deceptive letters

pure and naked eyes see in white.

"I'm ok," he replied;

untainted eyes only

see the black and white,

moving their gaze elsewhere;

our world's people correspond with light's speed.

OK

remains deceitfully steadfast,

satisfies worldly quantities

simultaneously

breaking his soul's quality.

white lies untamed

grow into mortal demons

who feed on pieces of the broken soul.

OK

shadows the frail

'br' and 'en'

encompassing it,

tainting them off-black and

invisible to the innocent eyes.

however the already broken souls

see between black and white.

OK

"i'm ok" one year later

couldn't fool the listener

tortured by the white lies told by

two deceptive letters.

gray letters to them stood out

brighter than white ever will,

and their heart ached for his soul

as they translated

"i'm ok"

to

"i'm broken."

-Unfortunately, it takes the broken to notice the broken.

Well, the day has finally come, the day I walk across that stage and have finally earned that diploma. Through the countless hours of studying, the numerous mental breakdowns, and the late nights, I survived.

As I sit here waiting for them to call my name, I can't help but think back on how the past four years went. I can't help but think about all that you have done for me and how I cannot thank you enough.

I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.

Thank you for the never-ending support.

Thank you for providing me with an environment where I could grow, a place to call home, and a place to return to.

Thank you for pushing me to achieve my dreams and always supporting them no matter what. Thank you for pushing me to get through the tough times and encouraging me to challenge myself.

Thank you for being there for me through the many tears.

Thank you for reminding me that it is okay to take some time and breathe when I felt like everything was getting more and more difficult.

Thank you for teaching me how to prioritize and how to manage my time.

Thank you for the endless advice on what to do with my future, how to handle the challenges, and how to just manage being human.

I could not have gotten through those four years of school without you. I hope to be just as generous, supporting, and as loving as you are.

Thank you.
