  • Heartbreak

    Nineteen year old actor living and working in Los Angeles. I never force a poem; I write when I find inspiration during my day-to-day life lving in this vibrant city. As someone who is caught somewhere between boy and man, my poem offers a sensitive take on how young people may handle losing someone they love, in whatever way that may be. The poem combines elements of naivety and longing, yet also thoughtfulness and composure, presenting to its reader an idea that the subject, whomever he or she be, is an old soul in a young body.

    Free to Fly

    I was born in January, 1997, in Joplin, Missouri. My father walked out of my life when I was four or five years old and later passed away when I was eleven. His death stung me and hit me hard. I began writing songs and poetry to deal with the pain and express my emotions. My mother never seemed to be interested in my songs or poetry writing abilities. So I wrote "Free to Fly," a poem about standing up for what you believe in and following your dreams. That is what is important in life.

    Always Faithful

    It seems for most people poems are words that rhyme or simply thoughts from the heart. For me life has many passions; poetry is one of mine, just as I am passionate about leading an active lifestyle. From the Marine Corps or a recent tough mudder my passion towards fitness isn't turned on. I unleash it, which is to say I approach poetry the same. "Always Faithful" is a timeline. As for my inspiration, one I will call "Mi Libro," the other my cousin Jeska Trevino. Is life full of irony or bitterness? I'll take irony. It's easier on the heart. Semper Fidelis.

    The Life of a Book

    My name is Jamie Jenkins. I am a junior at School of Arts and Enterprise. I am the youngest out of five family members. I'd like to take a moment and thank my brother, Casey, for serving in the Marines. My thought process behind this poem began when I realized I didn't like sad endings in books. Then I began to think these books could relate to lives of other people that no one has met yet. And thus came to life my poem to bring forth my discovery.

    Pennywise

    my poem is a bit dark and twisted yes it's about being bullied. In my life, I always get picked at cause I'm the so-called weird girl and they always call me weird or they won't like to play with me. I would get bullied by the way I look or the way I am. In the poem, I said, " Teach me how to fit into anyplace that I can hide". which means teach me how to blend in but let's face it we are unique and we should love ourselves and don't care about what people think of us hey I'm still weird and people like me cause I'm myself towards them and you should too. Remember don't let others get to you, be your own, be unique.

    Can You Hear Me?

    I'm Michelle Henderson, a young poet residing in Fayetteville, NC. I'm engaged and the mother of a wonderful eight-year-old boy who is the inspiration to my poetry. The inspiration behind "Can You Hear Me?" comes from losing my mother in 2014 to cancer--from battling grief to feeling alone when my prayers feel like they're going unanswered. In all actuality, God has been there the whole time. God is good.
