If My Life Was a Song

by Mia Kroshka, age 11

If my life was a song,

I would sing along.

With the beat of the drum

And the fast-moving people

Left, right

With their heads up high,

As I skip down the trail,

With my head in a daze,

As we still hear music play,

Even from far away

I know it is me.
