City Spotlights Teen Reflection

Posted 2 July 2013 12:00 AM by Jade Cheek, Education Department Intern, Teen Leadership Council & City Spotlights Alumnus

Speaking my mind

Without really speaking at all

Writing out thoughts

That soon becomes words

Not because I want them to

But because they choose to

Expressing my heart on paper

Forms me a little better

My heart, my soul, my mind

One word at a time

Rhyming or no rhyme

The thoughts are all mine

Whether they stood out or skated by

Swiftly through the narrowness of a line

Or plunged through the apprehensive cry


Still had the time to speak my mind

By writing one line acknowledged

One clap at a time

Thanks to City Spotlights

I had the chance to shine bright

An opportunity to stand and fight

Not physically but verbally

For what is right
