• We’ve been walking on this path for what feels like forever.

    Oh for god’s sake,

    my feet are starting to ache.

    Don’t tell me to stop complaining please,

    I just don’t understand how you’re walking with such ease

    Your poem is lovely. I can really feel your emotion behind it when I read it. I cannot directly relate to it, but certain ideas of it are very relatable. Overall awesome job.

    Great poem! I think many teenagers can relate. It reminded me of the movie Ten Things I Hate About You.

    This is such a lovely poem. I right away thought of my own mother and could relate to it very well. Reading this reminded me of just how thankful I am to have such a wonderful person in my life like my mother.

  • Hi! I really enjoyed reading your post because I learned a lot and you enlightened me on multiple issues. Many people in society, including myself, are blind to the issues that these kids face. I think it’s up to everyone to work together to bring to light these issues so all these kids have a better childhood and place to grow up. Great piece.

  • Your poem is extremely powerful. I am hopeful that in the future we will have a president that is a relatable figure for all, but currently we are so far from that. It’s sad that we have a president that threatens all the freedoms we have worked so hard for. Great writing.

    Hi Holden! I really like this poem. It has great imagery! It reminds me when I saw Louis the Child, have you ever heard of them?

  • I love the message that you’re trying to get out. You’re very well spoken. I agree that all teens no matter their gender need to feel safe, and I believe it is very unfortunate that our president does not support that idea. Keep speaking up for what you believe in. Great work.

    I agree with the comment above, the more love the better! I don’t think there is any right or wrong person to love. If you love someone, you love them. It’s that simple.

  • Hi! Awesome poem. It was really deep and I could feel the emotion you put into it when you wrote it. I think a lot of people can relate to it in numerous ways. Great job.

    Hi Janyah,

    I think your writing really hits home with a lot of people and every girl can relate in some way, shape, or form. I think society is toxic when it comes to body image, and parents don’t do much to help when they raise their sons either. Great piece!

    Hi Thaarini,

    I thoroughly enjoyed your poem. Based on this poem, it seems like you are an amazing writer. Your use of imagery was fantastic and I could relate to every line you wrote. I also like the ending of your story where you state the word nostalgia as the feeling you were describing, and I too agree that nostalgia is such a warm sounding…[Read more]

    Hi Jasmine,

    I found your poem about your room to be very relatable and enjoyable. I can relate to many versus. For example, I too think of my room as safe place, and I also always like to keep my room clean.

    The window is completely open and the warm summer breeze is blowing around the airy white curtains. Through the chipped white paint that covers the oak framed window I see nothing but green hills and blue skies. A

  • Hi Autumn,

    I really enjoyed your poem! It has great descriptive writing and really allowed me to picture the things you wrote about. Your poem taught me about you and was very fun to read.

  • Hi Marcus,

    Awesome poem! Being a high school student I found it very relatable.

    Hi Holden,

    Awesome poem about your friend, Allison! I really enjoyed it, especially the lines “always shown” and “never mentioned.”

    Hi Jannette,

    Eleanor and Park is one of my favorite books. I found it to be a very sweet quick read. I think the author does a good job developing Eleanor and Park’s relationship without it being forced, rushed or too cheesy. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book!

    I am from lightning bugs in mason jars,

    and wet feet from the dewy night time grass.

    I am from Kool-Aid that stains my tongue blue

    and cartwheels that make my head spin.

    I am from the house with the yellow

      Dear Alli,
      My name is jose and I was amazed by your poem Were i’m From Because I felt like I was able to connect with what your lines said. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is I am from a little bit of everything and a little bit of everyone. I think that this is beautiful because everything and everyone does make you how you are. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear Alli,
      I really liked this poem. I wrote a Where I’m From poem earlier this year and found it difficult to make it flow nicely but also have the kind of emotion I wanted it to. Your poem did an incredible job of that. I really loved the imagery of the bookshelf in the last couple lines. It truly got across this concept of a family rooted in it home and memories that I really enjoyed. Thank you for sharing!

    • Dear Alli,
      I loved reading this poem. I felt like I was able to really visualize all of the things that you described. From the Kool-Aid to the superman ice cream. Those descriptions helped me connect to your poem. My favorite line has to be the last one where you state “I am from a little bit of everything and a little bit of everyone.” I think that line is so true. In every person that you meet they become apart of you and you to them. I think in everything we see we are able to find a little part of ourselves.
