5 Poems

"I have neglected your love"

I have neglected your love
I have your love
Your love has neglected me
I am your love
Me, I,
your love
Neglected I have or have I
Or have
your love
I am your love
I have neglected me.

-Maria Gonzalez, age 16

"I am"

I am from Laban St.
I am from the room that I don’t like, dragon pictures on the door, and the orphaned kitten me and my mother tried so hard to rescue from starvation.
I am from Laurel Hill.
I am from playing make-shift baseball in a crumbling driveway with the kids from second floor and using a leaf, a crack and a rock as bases.
I am Wallace St.
I am from the untamed rhododendron bush that was such a good place to imagine and
the basement floor I used to draw chalk pictures on.
I am from Webster Ave.
I am from Katrina’s pit-bull puppies, the funny fruit trees, the biggest maple tree on the block and going to Marissa’s house.
I am from a moving van.
I am from “AAAH! Mom, there’s a giant bug in the bathroom!!!” and seeing my first Rhode Island mosquito at the rest stop.
I am from the road.
I am from losing a frightened cat and then finding her again.
I am from Georgetown.
I am from the backyard where I learned to cartwheel
and the one where I caught a bull frog.
I am from the middle of nowhere and the trailer that came with it.
I am from the road.
I am from a moving-out room and “I’m not gonna move and you can’t make me!”
I am from Wayland, Massachusetts.
I am from grinding away on the sidewalk in my first set of blades, the Winnie-the-Pooh story book I found under the Christmas tree, and the garage band my dad had.
I am from…
I am from…
Where am I from again?

- Elizabeth Keith, Age 15

"My Life"

And then there’s that time when her father died
However I think of it, it was a big part of my life
Yesterday still haunts me but it doesn’t keep me
Away from tomorrow.
- Jessica Frias, Age 15

"The Structure of a Woman's Silence"



Remote from her own experience

Reflecting negatively

About a sexual

Psyche profound impact

Growing up


Becmes a powerful form of censorship

Intimate deep-seated


Influence the

Nature of space

I'd like to speak phenomenon

denial censorship

- Adrienne Adeyemi, Age 17
