    Meet John: Number one in the senior class. National Honor Society president. Perfect scorer on the ACT. If I tie for third in the Poetry Slam, he places second. If I set a personal record in cross-country, he’s team MVP. It’s always the same story: In the world of transcripts and awards ceremoni...

    I pursue a fool's mission, Glancing in mirrors, a narrow-minded perception. Faking my passions and deceiving myself, To be an envoy of the health god I worship. I forgot You and left my friends On the periphery of my intention. My heart recognizes the ache but denies the cause. At m...

    shreds of two hearts fall to the ground, and in time a toxic, unnameable growth takes hold and piles anger upon anger— a heap of burning coals— the slightest nudge sends them tumbling, burning, with every word, every silence where a tender word fled to the depths of our dim and darken...

    My eyes are searing critics of my reflection As I stand in a high school bathroom. This image is my identity, my spirit, my god. Look at that face—a façade. A mouth curves into a smile for the mirror; My skin is a canvas, daily repainted to hide flaws. I twist my deadweight of hair In...

    It's more than fitness; it's perspective on life, for running is so analogous to life. The human lifetime is commonly compared to a path, a road, a journey. Just like a course marked for running, or in the case of my sweltering run this afternoon, simply the side of the asphalt road, life ...

    I want to feel the squish of cool mud through my toes. I want to feel the world through my feet, Pounding over cement, skipping over gravel, Sinking into rain-drenched earth. My running feet, collecting grass seeds. I want to run in the rain, Droplets sliding down my arms And darkenin...

    Wherever humans are, there I reside. I am older than the oceans; I never cease to be. If not for me, millennium ago would you have died. No civilization could flourish without me. I flow freely from every tongue Like water bursting from a leak. Ever since the world was young, I’ve bee...

    As a developed country, the United States appears to be far removed from the worst of global challenges.
