Like a live plant in a dead garden, our green uniforms set us apart.
Like a cactus in a desert, our hair sticks out and sets us apart.
Like a building with lights in a power outage, the lights in our jackets set us apart.
We are strong and beautiful.
Like a statue in a garden, our importance sets us apart.
Like a peacock among chickens, our feathers set us apart.
Like a bejeweled queen, our gold medals set us apart.
We are undefeated and proud.
Like a celebrity in a crowd, our center position sets us apart.
Like a giggling child in a serious picture, our confident smiles set us apart.
Like a blood family, our togetherness sets us apart.
We are Madison Independent.

This poem reflects how I felt at the award ceremony for color guard championships. My team had an undefeated season and our pride in this accomplishment and in our work was apparent at the ceremony.
