    • Brianna–

      What a wonderful poem! It’s really cool how you were able to combine poetry with history and create a poem that carries emotional depth and tells the story of Bessie Coleman. I like your rhyme scheme, it was mostly AABBCC with a few exceptions. I like how you described her death with the sound BOOM and implying she died in an crash of some kind rather than just writing out that she died. I also enjoyed how your poem ended on a hopeul note. You gracefully turned a tragic death to an inspirational legacy with the words, Inspiring others, Now there are other wonders. Thank you for this poem!

  • This poem was inspired by Angie Thomas, who wrote the book “The Hate You Give”. The speaker from this poem is Starr, the main character. With the help of DeVante she understood both Khalil’s and DeVante’s situati

    • Brianna,
      This was a lovely poem. I have never read the book “The Hate you Give”, but from what you wrote I am now quite interested. I also think that the message you are trying to get across is a strong one that people don’t always understand. Your last two lines were so strong and true to todays world. If people want to inspire change, they have to work together, but it just takes one person getting another person involved and that can cause a chain reaction. I really enjoyed this poem and could see this persons journey through your writing. Thank you and I hope to read more from you in the future.

    • Brianna,
      This is a really nice poem! I haven’t read the book that inspired it, but the way this poem is crafted sure makes that book seem really interesting. There are a lot of important points that this poem makes. I think that the second stanza is really powerful because it shows that sometimes disenfranchised people don’t have any choice or opportunity to escape the way they live. But as the poem develops, it shows that with dedication to a cause, anyone can escape their situation and become what they want. I really enjoyed reading this and I hope to read your posts in the future!
