(For NaPoWriMo, Day 7)

As long as I can remember, from at least elementary
I was raised to excel and avoid penitentiary
That’s what always placed me on a different trajectory

The Lord must have felt that success was my trajectory
He has blessed me and the family since elementary
Even if some of my friends almost went to penitentiary

The world told me that I’d be dead or in penitentiary
Teachers and mentors seemed to sense my trajectory
A path laid out since I was in elementary

Since elementary penitentiary wasn’t my trajectory
