First Day Poem {SOL 9-02-14}

First Day

Wake before the alarm
Here we go
Months off have refreshed me
Restored me
Relaxed me
But have they prepared me?

Multiply my anticipation
By 24
And that's a lot of responsibility
To carry
To own
To balance.

But my anticipation breeds action.

I am off --
To inspire
To nurture
To grow
(And with a little luck)
To teach.
