I Am Liberty
by Cheyenne Miller-Bond

I extend my torch high above New York Harbor
To show the world that I represent hope, freedom, and justice for mankind
My flame symbolizes freedom that is stronger than the lightning
Which shatters the darkness in ones sky
This light of freedom offers hope from bondage, which has enslaved people with fear
I am a gift from France to friends in America
Representing beauty, self-confidence, love, and freedom
I remained proud and tall, as the smoke from September 11ths terrorism attack
Threateningly drifted past my face
People felt strength and encouragement as they saw me still standing
Offering hope, and a new start to the hearts of grieving and fearful Americans
Who were tempted to despair
