A Free You, A Free Me

Written By Ayanna Raj (Grade 8)

A free you, a free me

That’s the way it should be!

All of us are completely free

But what does that mean for you and me??

For some, doing away with slavery

Is the real meaning of liberty

For some, speaking their mind

Is the best freedom they can find

Some feel that a free nation

Is one with no discrimination

For some, it is the freedom to choose

To love, to marry or to lose

But for me, freedom is that power

That lets me be ‘me’ at any hour

Be ‘me’ when I want to sing or dance

Be ‘me’ when I want to dream or take a stance.

Be ‘me’ when I want to paint or sow

Be all of me and so much more.

Solitude’s Search

Alone versus loneliness, two sides of a coin,
One a peaceful state, the other a mournful groan.
I'm sitting here, alone in my room...

Summer of Study

Beneath the searing summer sun,
My friends and I studied one by one,
Gripping our pens with razor-sharp minds...

Time Flies By

Was it a dream?
Or, was I not alive?
Everything went by...
