I am Paige Sakakida, daughter of Tiffany,
Who was recognized throughout the land
For her patience as a toddler-teacher and
A single matriarch of four.
She was intent to fashion a revision,
One of profession, convert to manager
Of an ink-master.
It was I who, in only grade three,
Was bumped up to the advanced faction
Of the dance with metal-bottom shoes.
It was I who toiled to ameliorate music playing,
And I who garnered
the “Most Improved” award.
The flag-twirling and sword-spinning sport,
Although new, proved to bestow confidence.
It was I who acquired a solo
In years one and three,
And I who will obtain my degree on the
Eighth day of the sixth month of the year
Two thousand and seventeen.
