To My Great-Granddaughter (:60) – University of Phoenix

My great granddaughter, You may never know me, but when I look at you, I look back on my life and I know what it was for. So you could have
the childhood they said I couldn’t have… in the places they said
I couldn’t go… in the words they said
I couldn’t speak. How I’ve imagined your life
between my shifts, in my studies, in
books and pages; in nights so late I’ve seen
your face in definitions. But what if I struggled and sacrificed and
swore I’d succeed, so you could wake up one day with the choice to be
anything you wanted? Well then, my great
granddaughter… It would all be worth it.
