Birthday gift from a "late bloomer"
Birthday gift from a "late bloomer". (PS: Today's not my birthday!)

How can you call me a late bloomer

when I'm blooming on my terms?

How can you call me underprivileged

when I have the privilege of learning resilience?

How can you call me shortsighted 

when my vision is grander and brighter than yours?

How can you call me illiterate 

when learning goes beyond words and numbers?

How can you call me a student

when I'm the one that's guiding you?

Call me your equal,

and I'll probably pause to listen to you.
