Dear 14-Year-Old Valeria

A poem for you:  
Singing is your favorite melody.
You found out what friendship means and where it lights up.
Everyone and everything inspires you to keep moving on.
So keep moving on.
The day and night are your best companions.
You see the world as not dangerous but as freedom
and if you ever speak up, know that it’s going to change
how you live and who you are.
You want to be free and escape to a place of delight.
As day and night combine, you will light up the sky.

By Valeria, 5th grade
