Skate by Liam Veitch
2013 Walk Award
By Liam Veitch, 6th grade

The winter interrupts
And takes away
From the freedom
To skate

Going to my favorite park
In the sun
It’s hard—indoors
I’m stuck
My parents built me a ramp—it’s not my favorite
My friends like it
In the dark barn

I like skate church
People there know me
And I feel free
I make friends
And people like me for who I am
I am a skater
Even without the sun
