Growing Into Me 
By: Winnie P.

When I was younger, I stood on boxes to be heard 

My voice was as loud as a baby bird 

As I grew older, I hoped to be brave 

But with each day that passed, I became more afraid 

Why is it me that cannot be 

Am I not worthy, am I not free to be me 

Let me stop the chatter inside my head 

I am going to be the best me instead 

I am powerful, I am loved, and I am kind 

I will not let my dreams be left behind 

An artist, a singer, or maybe a vet 

No matter the dream, it will be met 

You will see my name in blinking lights 

As I grow into me, I will bring forth my might 

I will change the world in a blink of an eye 

I will lift and support others until the day I die
