I Am... Scholarship Slam

I am a lover and a leaver

I wonder about my own future

I hear the calling of my fate

I see the whole of the ocean

I am a lover and a leaver

 

I pretend I'm a grown man

I feel the caress of wonder

I touch my dreams

I worry about the hatred between people

I cry for the pain in other's eyes

I am a lover and a leaver

 

I understand how it feels to be dust in the wind

I say that we are not shadows

I dream of not being defined by labels

I try to be the hand to pull others up

I hope to feel pride in my choices

I am a lover and a leaver
