A Lifetime

By Magdalena Mojkowska, age 13, Washington


I am a fish out of water
I am the odd man out
I am not ordinary
I am not extraordinary
I am an adventure
Exploring every day
As I am looking for myself
It’s been days
It’s been weeks
And I still hadn’t found myself
I am looking everywhere
Close, near, far
But I still hadn’t found myself
It takes me a while
A whole lifetime some may say
But I finally found myself,
I am me
I am witty and smart
Quick on my feet
My bodies small and petite
I find that I will always be young at heart
Even in the most serious situations
I laugh and I learn
But at least I am me
