Truce by Rose Schaffer

Those concert tickets taped to your wall show more than the date of when you saw a band.

They remind you of the people you’ve met outside of those venues,

and how fun it was to jump up and down with a thousand strangers.

YESTERDAY by Vinson

RUNNING, PLAYING, JUMPING, LAUGHING,
READING, WRITING, LISTENING, LEARNING,
TALKING, TEXTING, LOVING, HATING,
DRIVING, WORKING, BUYING, SELLING,
SITTING, CRYING, AND WHILE YOU’RE DYING,
YOU ASK WHERE DID YESTERDAY GO?


WHATEVER by Vinson

WHO ARE YOU?

WHO EVER I SAY I AM.

NO! I MEAN WHAT MAKE YOU?

WHAT EVER I WANT.

NO! I MEAN HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOURSELF?

HOW EVER I FEEL LIKE.

FINE. WHATEVER.

EXACTLY!

Slowly at the seams,

As I reach to sew it back

With the last of my dreams.

Droppin’ Credit by Jason Aquino

It can be easy being financially secure.

Gotta pick up a black pen and get down on the floor,

More specifically a check to pay back your loan

Vanity $uck$ by Matthew Smith

What is joy? And how do you be happy?

I’ll tell you now: you’ll get nothing from rapping.

They speak truth about the world’s materialistic way,

You’re listening and napping, but they’ve taken our generation for the grabbing.

The past,
Or time that we spent too fast.

Skies by Matthew Smith

This was not written in honor of Hurricane Sandy.

To honor disaster is to stand over the remains of a battle lost and rejoice in the adversary’s victory.

Tree of Life by Karin Olsen

It starts with one leaf falling.

You breathe in the air hitting your face as your legs pedal a bike for the first time.

Healing by Matthew Smith (Copy Poem of “I Give You Back” by Joy Harjo)

I heal you, O familiar and wretched pain.

I heal you.

You were my broken and sinful twin, but now, I don’t know you as myself.

I heal you with all the crushing affliction I would know at the breaking of my body.

Untitled By Amy Williams

Only one power

Can bring such despair

Hold on to the darkness

And let death take over

Untitled By Karin Olsen

Look at the dude who fears
Drowning in a pool of tears
Gonna need a doctor

There’s those days when you feel most alive
When you step outside into the sunlight from the dark cave you call home

Untitled By Anonymous

What’s wrong with this generation?
It’s amassing that people still hating
on stuff that 30 years ago would have been racist.

My Butchered Goodbye by Haley Amplo

Saying goodbye to someone you love is like ripping away part of your soul.
It will never be the same.
It will never remotely resemble its full, whole being ever again.

Elements by Jason Aquino

Let the peace walk through a meadow

its hands stretched to the rose petals.

Give it the right to lay on a spruce tree,

head rested on the tree trunk.

The Growth Of a Weeping Willow Tree by Raghavi Nimmala

Death comes to all of us in the most haunting and devastating ways.
He thinks of our lives as an addition to his garden of glory,
and the chase to grow that tree as the most enjoyable and adrenaline stirring moments of his life.

An Adopted Child’s Love by Anonymous
I’ve grown so much but you weren’t here
To hold me console me or fight my fear

Autumn by Star Peters
Her entrance could send shivers-
The warm aroma she carries fills the room.
