First Day

By Meredith

Today is something different
But yet, it's still the same

The sun still shines
The wind still blows
And the stars came out at night.

But I still feel different
Something different

I'm ready

I run out and embrace it
The earth at my grasp
The ground at my feet

My fingers tingle with excitement
My stomach lurches with fear

Maybe today, is the first day of feeling
Becoming reborn
Becoming me

Today is when I start living.
