I found Katie T.’s poem to be extremely captivating. It started out beautifully. I love how it is about a universal goddess who defies gravity. The figurative language is so effective and creative that I could picture what she was trying to paint in the reader’s mind. Her words came to life and created a masterpiece. Her ending was what I adored the most: “and Newton never brought her home.” Her references to scientists who studied or discovered the laws of physics are very interesting allusions and forms of figurative language.
“Gravity” was so good that I couldn’t help but read it over and over. Katie deserves much acclaim for this piece. Thank you, Katie, for sharing your wonderful work of art. I hope to read more by you in Teen Ink.
