Excerpts

Tell the World

Tell the World Who We Are

Who are you? Are you the child of the city you live in or the country you come from? Are you as steady as the beat of the music you love, as surprising as a bright flash of lightning, or as soothing as the sound of your grandmother's songs? Write a poem that shows through images that compare—metaphors and similes—who you are.
