Read Makayla’s 1st Place Poem Scoring 61/75

How can I succeed in a community filled with poverty ?  With these thoughts and voices in my head attacking me ? 
 I take a hit, just one so I could see the sun. 
Sometimes I hope for this life to be done, in matter of fact
Hand 
Me 
The gun. 
But wait 
can I still go to heaven if I kill myself ? 
 thinking of those that I hold dear
Who would only feel despair if I were to end it here. 
can I still go to heaven if I kill myself? 
What will they think ? Will they say that I was weak?  thinking of everything I fear, 
I know my time can not end here .
These thoughts and voices in my head attacking me are just distracting me from becoming who I was meant to be. 
A queen with good energy who wears her scars as if they were an accessory 
I hope if you step to me , you will see that this is my second chance and it will not be the death of me.
