Still I Stand
Carissa, Age 16, Ashburn, VA

I raise that flag with pride held high
For my forefathers fought to die
I cherish my freedom, let it ring
For even now I dare to dream
Gratitude, where my heart shall fly

With all my might and hope I try
To forget past crimes, an awful lie
Let peace blossom through cherry trees
Mistakes can happen, thatís the thing
And still I stand

Comforting warmth and apple pie
Depict my home, my life, my cries
I take stride in steps, even sing
With my head held high, visions gleam
Contempt at last a breath I sigh
And still I stand.
