2021 Winner

Staying Young Forever

It’s because you are old —

You don’t understand the way we dance.

        But we are young

        like a volcanic eruption,

        fresh and durable

Our imagination is endless and apart;

The touch of youth is like a magnetic moment

        Our fashion is unbelievable and wordless

The music isn’t the language,

It’s the beat.
