I Remember

April 10, 2008
By Elizabeth Carr, Mesa, AZ

I remember when I was afraid to go to school
People were cruel and unkind
I remember when I had to sit alone at lunch
A lost, lonely child
I remember when I started junior high
Finally, a new beginning
I remember when people told me who I was supposed to be
No one accepted change
I remember the first time I sang in choir
A place where I should be
I remember the first time I had friends to laugh with
This is what life should feel like
I remember the first time a boy fell in love with me
The entire world seems to stop
But most of all, I remember when I finally fell in love with myself
You are beautiful
