I Am

I am awake and focused
I wonder what tomorrow holds
I hear the humming of change
I see shoots springing from the soil
I want to impact the world
I am awake and focused

I pretend to be a statue
I feel the crack inside
I touch my voter's registration card
I worry about the rigid world
I cry that the moment has already passed
I am awake and focused

I understand this new chapter in history
I say let's freeze time forever
I dream of a better life for my children
I try to keep moving my feet
I hope we keep moving our feet
I am awake and focused
