2011 Teen Poetry Slam 1, Noah

“I borrow these artforms…
I see these people who speak and who move
because their lives depend on it,
and I strive for their elegance and strength.
because if my body moves just right,
and if my words come out so true,
then I can earn the right to join the people
fighting back through their forms of expression.”

A young mind with a strong voice is a powerful thing.

Be dangerous.”
