I, Too, Sing America

Stumbling

Blindly

 

“No way,”

They say

“Not possible”

As I try

Try harder than

I ever have

Getting better

Faster

Stronger

 

Someday,

I’ll be there

Up at the top

Where the best lie

In wait

For the newcomer

 

I’ll be there someday

Someday,

Someday,

I’ll be there

I’ll get there

You’ll see my name

in the shining lights

 

illuminated like a thousand fireflies

 

blinking

 

over

and

over

and

 

over.

 

And you’ll smile

 

Because you know

And I know

We’re there

 

Written for the September In-Depth spread, “(87) Days of Summer,” featuring students’ poetry and prose on experiences over summer vacation that changed their perspective.
