These Students Will Lead Us

Tens of thousands

of students they left their classrooms

yesterday  seventeen minutes

spurred by spurred by

Florida high school shooting.

Seventeen dead. No more

silence no more silence. Go from

your heart and do what’s right said

Justin Blackman of Raleigh North Carolina

the only one in his entire class who

walked out the door.  Next time

the rest will follow him.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
