(Written in 2004, at age 17.)

To love, and to cherish,
To weaken, and to perish,
To know, and to believe,
To hurt, and to deceive,
To be human, to make mistakes,
To correct them, to raise the stakes,
To take with humility, and to give without thought,
To give up, relinquish, that which must be sought,
In this good and bad,
When we are happy and sad,
We reach out and hold,
And are warm in the cold,
Because we know we must further,
Because we have each other,
Because we must try, and I.

(Originally, the last 2 lines of the poem were as follows:
Because we know we can,
We...woman and man.)
