The Boy, the Owl, and the Search for Purpose

"This is a poem I wrote sophomore year, with some revisions made to it since then. The main theme of the poem is that our purpose in life is to help and serve others, which I wholeheartedly believe." -Nick Schwarzmann

Future

"I came across a writing prompt that said, "Write about leaving", and as a senior my mind is usually on college, so the words just flowed out of me. I have many days like the day I wrote this where I can't help but daydream about the future, and about freedom." -Olivia Pastore

“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...

Karp portrays the beautful details hidden within a genuine look of happiness

Old Joy

Ethan Karp , Student Submission, 10th Grade March 14, 2016

"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...

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.

When Writers Write

"A simple poem about the life, struggle, and eventual "inspiration" for modern, typical, writers of today (especially those that use computers when writing essays, poems, and articles). My inspiration for writing this poem was to base it upon a stream of consciousness. I thought about what I wanted to do, which was write a poem, which led me to talk about writing poems and essays and any literary writings, for that matter; just the typical problems that come when attempting to write." -Elton Govada

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...

The Apple Thief

"This piece is about learning life lessons." -Mahima Siripurapu
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...

Worldly Gems

"I wrote this piece in inspiration of a picture that I took at Amicalola Falls in Dawsonville, Georgia. My family goes hiking almost every weekend, and we love venturing out and finding new places. Living so close to the North Georgia mountains, we are so blessed to be able to see the pure world that God created. However, not many people get to experience this; they are stuck in their non-stop, everyday lives. I think everyone should take a step back and truly appreciate the land around them." -Jessica Borla
Jessica Borla , Advertising Lead March 1, 2016

What hidden beauty the world beholds, Pure and untouched. Far closer such splendor lies than most realize, And therefore they do not explore this world; Robots stuck in this urban universe, Blind. Machines...

Speak Up

"This piece was inspired by how I always kept my silence in younger years. My response to anything negative around me, or anything negative that I was processing, was to isolate and seclude myself. My main point was to ensure that I would not be a burden to anyone around me. These kinds of things are hard to bottle up, and this poem (that's truly meant to be spoken) represents the process I've gone through. It's almost like a defense mechanism, a cycle that I've worked hard on to break." -Nusaybah Smith
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...

Free Will
