I am not a number,

I will not conform to a game.

I am not a test, 

I will not feel the shame.

I will make you know my name. 


You aren't my friend

You haven't even tried. 

You just blame.

You have a perspective of one side. 

I am so stifled I have no choice but to abide.


But your agenda is in a tunnel,

Don't you want see?

My peers and I are great.

But you won't believe. 

We are responsible to choose who to be. 


I have high value, 

But it is not in the score.

I have potential, 

But it's not what you're looking for.

I am a part of so much more.
