Isn’t this Punny?

Evie Lawson spreads the joy of puns through comics

"This comic inspired piece is a collection of some of my favorite bad puns. I started loving puns since I joined an improv troupe freshman year, and my mind has functioned in puns ever since. I hope these bring a smile to your face today! I am a firm believer that seven days without a pun makes one weak...

The Time of Growth

Jessica Objartel, Sudent Submission, 11th Grade

April 20, 2016

At first I had only known darkness, the warmth of the earth, and the coldness of the water that quenched my thirst. Then, after what I assume was time had passed, I came to know the vast, never ending sky; the beauty of the sun as it shined down and warmed my entire being; and the chill of the wind that...

The Boy, the Owl, and the Search for Purpose There was a young boy who was sad and distraught, He moped around his quiet, empty house, thinking his life was all for naught, He thought to himself, “Why are we living? What’s life all about?” He couldn’t answer those questions, so his face ha...

“Are you excited for college?” They all seem to ask me tirelessly, and sometimes I’m afraid to tell them, to let my truth bleed from my mouth: I imagine leaving home almost every day. I imagine a car or a plane taking me to places uncharted to find a life anew. I imagine my famil...

When The Battles of Thames Killed Tecumseh: First and Second Variations

SungMin Park, Staff Writer

March 16, 2016

The poem is fiction. It comes in two variations and it is written from Tecumseh's point of view. I imagined Tecumseh dying to an American soldier, a soldier who displayed a laughable irony. The irony is this: as the soldier is killing Tecumseh, he gives praise for the United States and for its ideals...

"I was digging around photos of old people on the internet for my next piece of artwork, and I saw a photo of a skinny Asian man that had a happy expression on his face. I created a detailed portrait of the old man's face to capture that joyful expression of his. The light reflecting off of his old...

When Writers Write

This older woman asked to be allowed to paint within the art museum in D.C. and I was fortunate enough to witness her painting an exact replica of this famous painting. She has a true talent and would rather paint for the joy of it without being considered a professional and without seeking fame.

I sit on a chair, waiting I stare at the screen, dreaming I look around the room, thinking but I can't seem to find it The strokes of my fingers move swiftly The letters on the page appear immediately The thoughts from my mind come intently but then, the “delete” key is pressed The air...

The Apple Thief

Mahima Siripurapu, Student Submission, 11th Grade

March 8, 2016

I don’t know if children are born with a natural tendency to be malicious. There are obviously cases where children are perfect. Take for example Malia. Growing up, my mother would repeatedly remind me of how I should be more like this wonderful child, she had perfect form when dancing, perfect...

Speak Up

Nusaybah Smith, Associate Editor

February 22, 2016

I've never been good with words You know, the ones that crawl up your throat From the oxygen and thought that surfaces in your lungs And circulates in your brain Reverberating from the chords of your voice Via the chains of your sane I've never been able to interrupt that circulation To pull from my th...

Through the Clouds

Bryan McKnight, Student Submission, 11th Grade

February 19, 2016

Fly too high and you’re bound to choke Gas mask on still breathing in smoke Father named Daedalus A proud kingdom crumbles to dust You were having fun but then the lights went down You woke up hazy lying upside down Put together pieces of what you missed Ignorance doesn’t feel like bliss Or...

Things Happen

PJ McBrayer, Student Submission, 11th Grade

February 10, 2016

Things happen in people’s lives That completely change them It might be an accident, or the loss of a loved one Or something personal Where your heart breaks into a million pieces Lost and full of pain you drag on day by day, Wondering if the hurt you feel in your soul will ever go away Life a...

An Observation of Nature

Emma Cave, Student Submission, 11th grade

January 29, 2016

The mist that covers the earth Paints a picture of innocence in the sapphire ether. A landscape above our heads We have yet to set foot on. They turn as fast as time Never the same as they were before. A gradient of vice to virtue To fall through them is to experience bliss. Dependent as...
