God's Angel and a Lost Soul

There’s a girl who’s not your everday girl, by any means- she’s been through a lot more than you could imagine. This girl not only has encountered miles of hopelessness, years of misery, and a none stop flowing river of sorrow, but also has been drowning in her own tears looking for a way out. This girl has taken on challenges with anxiety and bitterness. This girl is now 17 years old, and every one of those years held a new stumbling block to overcome. With her eyes full of deception and a heck of a phony grin, she doesn’t complain. She has been God’s angel, and a lost soul all at once. She is very outgoing, goal oriented, and will help anyone who needs it. She strives for the best and even what she knows she can’t have. She wants the chance to make a difference. She has a story, one that should be heard. This girl is me.Here I am, with a mind full of thoughts, a stomach full of buterflies, and a non-stop migraine, but that’s not going to stop me. I could write about how hard my life has been, how depressing, lifeless and overwhelming the world seems. Or maybe I could tell you about how my father and I don’t talk anymore and the way my mother seems to feel the same way I do, depressed and unhappy. But no, I’ll save you the time.I may sound snippy, or even crude, but please don’t judge me just yet. In reality, I am timid, quiet, and never disrespectful. I am talented and yet have been through alot. That might make me dainty, ecstatic, and a tiny bit sensitive, but I seem to maintain. Glassy-eyed as I am, I know what I want and what I can achieve. What I need and want is a chance to go to college. Trust me, I know I probably couldn’t go to college right now with the grades I have been getting these last three yers, but that is my goal. The only thing that’s going for me right now is my strength and courage to get what I want. To tell you the truth, the person I have been from my freshman to junior year hasn’t been me. I haven’t truthfully shown my true colors.I have things to deal with that ordinary 17 year olds do. I have been waist deep in problems, whether my family’s and friends or mine. It always seems there is a never-ending road with a bump every single mile, it’s like the road goes nowhere. During high schoolI have been so wrapped up with responsibilities and family issues that it’s like my whole high school experience has flew right by. I would really love to change all of my grades these last three years, but who am I kidding, that’s really not going to happen.I strongly believe I deserve a chance to prove myself to everyone that I can go to college. I know I can turn my life around and make a difference, and I definitely know I can turn my fake grin into a dazzling, pleased smile. I do not want anyone’s sympathy, because I know I will soar to places never dreamed of, even if my wings are clipped. Because for me, and my life, it’s a different story, a story without an ending.
