“I Will Write”

Logan Williams, Class of 2016

I will write

I will write

I will feel a glow of sun as my breath inflates these new lungs

I will put up a golden ladder just to climb its brilliant rungs

I will rise higher than most would ever dream

I will learn to shout and scream

I will let my fears vanish from this tested mind

I will open my eyes to a world one of a kind

I will breathe in deeply this fresh sky

I will jump from this ledge and try to fly

I will wake from my dream and put on this shirt

I will roll down these sleeves to mask the hurt

I will bite this lip and will not cry

I will wait for my time to die

I will write

I will write

So I may forget the morning light.
