HERE’S TO YOU

February 8, 2008
By Kat Meade, Camp Lejeune, NC

Why be anyone but you?
Those who stay by your side
matter but don’t mind—
and those that tease you
mind but don’t matter.
So three cheers for individuality,
and having your own personality.
Here’s to you…

To all the
nerds—
kooks—
down-on-your-luck,
never-be-in-the-spotlight
ones.
Here’s to you.

To all the
geeks—
nobody’s—
never-get-a-date,
wear-a-pocket-protector
ones.
Here’s to you.

To all the
populars—
Spoiled—
future-prom-queens-and-kings,
daddy’s-little-angel,
ones.
Here’s to you.

To all the
jocks—
studs—
coach’s-favorite-team-star,
captain-of-the-varsity-team
ones.
Here’s to you.

To all the
passionates—
creatives—
hiding-your-true-talent,
writers-and-artists-in-hiding
ones.
Here’s to you.

To all the
brains—
know-it-alls—
read-the-dictionary,
do-math-for-fun
ones.
Here’s to you.

So here’s to everyone.
all of those who do—
and don’t—
fit in.
Those who know their place,
and those who are still finding out.
Those who know it all,
or are in the dark.
Here’s to—
all the cliques,
of every way and kind—
that make our school:
here’s to you.
