I don’t think I thank my mom enough. Sometimes I take her for granted. Sometimes I get frustrated when she puts so many restrictions on me. growing up has made me realize that she does those things because she has good intentions and she has my best interests at heart. I feel bad when I don’t show her my appreciation as much as I should. She […] View
the emotions in these poem are described in a cool way. you mention things that id never ever think to include in a poem. I like how each poem was addressed to you but the feel of each one was significantly different.
I enjoyed this poem its kind of like self reflection self identity type of stuff. Im always asking if I could introduce myself to my own self because I feel like there’d be more things to realize that way. Its a different perspective.
I can completely agree with you on everything you said my parents love Ozzy’s thats our go too when we are sick of everything else. They always know how to make you feel comfortable and its like you’re at home almost. The food never disappoints us and its just a good environment to be in overall.
Creating a poem around something you’ve been able to experience with one group for four years is crazy beautiful and amazing its inspirational. I like how the poem represent something you’re leaving but you’ll never leave it for good.
I think having inner conflicts with yourself is the hardest thing to over come. I find myself being torn between my heart and mind. I know the voice in my head can be neglected when it comes to confronting issues
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
