Hey Kelly, I like your poem it’s really nice. I feel like this poem is very personal to you, was it something you wrote for yourself? Your line “to my greatest enemy, myself and only me” it seems as if you have an internal battle with yourself, and knowing that you were confident enough to expose this to the world and I applaud you for it.
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
