I Want to Be the Sunset
Haley, Age 12, Beaverton, OR

Sometimes I wish I could be normal
Like those girls with long hair
who play soccer.

But what kind of life would that be?
The same, boring, routine

I am different, and I know it
I see the world through un-blurred eyes
I speak my mind
I fight against pressure

And sometimes it hurts...I get sick of it
and let the "normal kid" slip through
But I then realize how BORING it is
to be the same, to be colorless
I want to be as colorful as
the brilliant
sunset...
I want to BE the sunset
Forever changing, forever colorful

Forever...me.
