An Acrostic Poem

Even when you try to hinder my potential

Covering me with a blanket of self-doubt to the point of suffocation

Little do you know, but I refuse to remain in your shadow

In me, you see a mere shell of a human being, incapable of anything

Perhaps my transformation requires a period of darkness

Shining light in areas once obscured to me

Eventually, when I re-emerge, you will be stunned by the sight you see


Thank you for reading!
