    The Voice You Will Always Hear

    • Paul-
      This is beautifully written. I love how you took a simple topic and applied values of poetry to make it unique and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed your writing and was captivated the whole time while reading it. I loved this piece and I especially loved how you said “My voice no longer follows and chases the voices of others trying to replicate them. It does not continually question itself before deciding to speak, wondering how it will be received. It is ever-changing, my connection to the world around me. At times it will falter, it will misstep, just as it always has.”. I think this shows growth, maturation, and confidence. Keep up the good work, I look forward to reading more from you.

    • Paul,
      this is such a beautiful piece that you have written. I was able to resonate with it very well, and I agreed with many of your points and statements. Your writing portrays a very wise, educated, and eloquent voice, and I have every reason to believe that that is a perfect reflection of yourself. Well done, I loved reading this!

  • Valerie,

    As someone who grew up with a dogwood tree in my backyard, I can absolutely appreciate your poem! I especially like your use of the word “dainty” as it is very fitting for dogwoods. This is a very nice piece!

  • Lexi,

    I commend you for tackling this topic, especially as it is one that is so widely-discussed and controversial in our country. As a citizen who can only offer my take, I, of course, cannot suggest an all-encompassing solution to such a complex problem, yet I think it’s important for our generation to continue discussing it. First of all, it…Read More

  • Maxwell,
    I think you do a nice job here of exploring the ethical and economic issues involved with multi-level marketing, with substantial evidence to back up your claims. My question to you is, what should be done about these corporations who operate either with a “pyramidesque” platform, or simply blatantly use a pyramid scheme to recruit…Read More

    I am so much, and yet,

    so little.

    I am a giant and yet simultaneously,

    I am more miniscule than a speck of dust.

    But to me, I am everything.

    My thoughts, my words, my very atoms,

    Will forever be

    "Through My Eyes"

    I am so much, and yet, so little. I am a giant and yet simultaneously, I am more miniscule than a speck of dust. But to me, I am everything. My thoughts, my words, my very atoms, Will forever be unique to me, experienced first-hand...

    • That’s an amazing poem, Paul. I like how you have a deep insight to what you feel and how everyone has their own thought, making us different. I thought that examples of how things we perceive different were crucial, where they seem so rudimentary but it evokes complexity of thought as well as vast differences. Nice job.
