A poem I wrote in 2003

Today is the day:
for walking slow to class
for thinking of who I'll pass
for looking at the sky
for watching the cars go by
for walking up eight flights of stairs
to tell someone that you care
for being all alone
for wanting to be home
for wondering why leaves are green
for seeing the concrete steam
for fighting for your rights
for understanding others' plights
for saying hello to friends
for saying no to trends
to take him out to lunch
for spiking the party's punch
for wearing your new shoes
for being what you choose
to stand up and rejoice
for making your own choice.
