Aly’s Winning

This is a poem I wrote for my daughter. Poetry should not be accompanied with too much commentary, so it is what it is.

Anyway…

A Poem for Aly

I am in third grade
and I am winning

I know about Japan
I know about Egypt
I know about Haiti

I know about wars
I know about earthquakes
I know about protests

And I am winning because
the world is not fair
but I am.

And I am winning because
the world is not kind
but I am.

And I am winning because
the world is mine
and yours, and yours, and yours

And I am winning because
my voice is brave
my heart speaks to you

I am winning
and so should you.
