“From mute screams,
From strangled dreams,
From stabs unknown,
I hope I have grown.
From castles in the sky,
From aspirations gone by,
From moments wasted and tears collected,
I think I have grown.
From half- held hands,
From buried in the sand,
I believe I have grown.
From potential hung,
From songs not sung,
From talents loaned to skills finally honed,
I see I have grown.
From blank faces to lit up eyes,
From sky wishes to jumping high-fives,
From silent class to chaotic bunch,
From quiet morn to rowdy lunch,
From rowdy lunch to pleasant bunch,
From a noisy market to an engaging show,
I have indeed seen them grow.
And from a vagabond lost in the night,
From a bird frozen in mid-flight,
From a horizon floating out of sight,
From a torch searching for some light,
I thank you,
For I know I have finally grown.”
