Something Great

Here’s a snippet of something I’m working on in my class:

 

It is not everyday

That we appreciate the lives that had to pay.

For the rights that we have today

To walk in a room with different people and stay.

 

We don’t often think

Of the price paid to drink.

Or wash in the same sink

And not even have to blink.

 

So today we appreciate

All those who fought hate.

All those who had to wait

So we could experience something great.
