A Poem A Day #5

I am a One

I, too, sing America.
I am a block of dust,
Alive, well.
I have a say in what I am,
I have a right in what’s around me.
I am a one, in a million,
In a place where a penny is worth more.
I am a one, in this place of free.
I am dot on an earthy map.
Small, and changeable.
Greatest given,
The life of a human.
True life,
Longer.
A dog given well,
A human greater.
I am a one, in this world.
I make a change,
Because I am a one.
