One chance

One opportunity

To show what I’m capable of

In a setting of those who

See the vision that will propel me

And those around me

Lift people up

Through words weaved together

In the most eloquent ways

Leaning toward all forms of knowledge

Teaching and learning through words written

Positive creativity

One time

One instance

Allowing all thought processes

Stimulating the brain

Exciting the mind

Unorthodox at best

Breathing the flame of truth

To bring belief that anything is possible

One shot

One moment

Wanting to show the right one

That I can do this heavy task

Getting to know all kinds

Breeching common ground

To bring forth a message

Of love

Of survival

Of peace

Of self-respect

Ending the cycle of closed thinking

One piece at a time

One word at a time
