In this assignment, we were asked to type a poem. For my poem, I am going to type my blackout poem and put it on Youth Voices. I enjoyed this assignment because it really put my creativity to use. When I read this poem, it makes me think about the emotions of Martin while he was in prison. When other people read this poem, I hope they get his message and they will help try to change laws for equality. We should all have integrity, always.

Dear Mikayla:

I am excited about your publication, because I would like very much to see, or read this poem. I like that you have a poem that motivates you, that inspires you.

I think this is exciting because there are many people like you who are inspired by a poem.

Thanks for your writing. I hope to see what you write next, because I really want to see, or be able to have the opportunity to read that poem that inspires you.

This is a really good project, you’ve obviously put a lot of thought into it. I like the message behind it, we should all be making a greater effort towards equality. Great job!

Black out poetry is my favorite type of poetry. I’m glad to see someone else enjoying it. I think the message that you are trying to convey is extremely important.

Interesting poem. I would like to see the words that you didn’t black out. You might type it out so we can read it, and keep the wonderful picture.
