By Bridgette Marin
Today I feel like a balloon going free
That when I’m blind, I can actually see
I’m a diamond so shiny, so bright
That I’m like the sun showing all the light.
Today I’m a free land
So free, that I’m a new brand
I feel like a bank with money
So rich, that I’m as sweet as honey!!!
I feel like going round and around
that I’m never going down
I feel like a bird making sweet sounds
That if I get lost, I will for sure be found.
When I’m happy
I’m a perfect circle
That never have gaps!!
I am perfect,
Just the way I am.
