    Dear Kanika,

    Thank you so much for thaking th etime to read and respond to my poem! I agree that it does take a lot of bravery to come out. For me one of the best ways for me to express these feelings is through poetry, because I can jsut let my feelings out on paper. I wonder is it like this for you? I am glad that you noticed this part of the…[Read more]

    Dear Ajaeya,
    I am intrigued by your poem because the way you phrase your words leads to a joyful feeling. It is a if I can almost feel the rain on my face as well. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “..they run away into/ grates where they dissapear..”. I think this is interesting because of the way you personifyed the rain drops. Your…[Read more]

    • One line that stood out to me is the line that said ” I will rise up for the boy who wants to be a girl. I think this line shows a lot of bravery because coming out as being gay is extremly inflexible just because some people are ashamed or, they’re scared that someone is going to judge them. To be a voice for someone who is not strong enough or brave enough to show who they really are is very brave of you.

    • Dear Jessica,

      Thank you deeply for responding and taking the time to read my poem! I feel you got at the meaning of my poem really well. I was happy to read that you got my meaning behind the words very clearly. I was a bit worrried that others might be confused or not get it as well as you did. I also agree that our socity really does need to change so that we don’t have to fit into a defined, socity approved slot. I hope some time I get to read your poems too. That poem you mentioned, “I’ll be free” sounds perticularly interesting. I too sometimes write poems for no reason, or just to catch the words floating around in my head on paper. I feel that poetry just lets something lose inside me that can only be expressed in verse. Do you ever feel this way?
      Thank you again for reading and responding to my poem!

  • Dear Latrell,
    Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “Bullets whisper into my ears” because this line was very poetic as well as meaningful.
    A connection I made to your poem was The Hate You Give because Starr’s best friend is killed and she feels overwhelming sadness because of it.
    Your poem also r…[Read more]

  • Dear Joseph,
    Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “Those between the bullet and the target, I mean, they didn’t do nothing wrong, what do they get?” because I agree. Why would someone want to kill innocent people, or even kill at all?
    Something I connected to in your poem was how you seem to be wri…[Read more]
