I Am Ready

Influence was imminent.

Inspiration was infinite.

Fun, love, bonds, ties, cries.

Games, hugs, secrets, thruth, lies.

Support and morals drilled in my head.

Look up to a roof, come home to a bed.

Food in my stomach, pride in my heart.

But in Life, I knew..

I must play my own part.



Senior, here and now,

My friends by my side.

I'll remember our times.

Won't lose Pirate pride.

Further along the road,

We may come face to face.

But while distance remains,

Best of luck finding your place..



Inside, fear resides.

But what can one do?

A little cry, a lot of try.

Sooner than later,

"Goodbye," I will say.

With goals and determination,

I will be on my way..

Running into life's open arms.

Nobody can hinder me;

Cause me no harm.



Years of anticipation,



I can do it.



I have my heart to carry me.

Ambition is strong and steady.

No matter who hears me,

I know: I am ready...

This poem is about: 
My family
Our world



My poem is for the "I Am... Scholarship Slam", and I am ready to set forth into a world of independence and lead a productive life for myself.
