Student Work

From a SpeakTogether virtual workshop, Talent Unlimited High School, Spring 2020

This poem was composed during a six-week session conducted by author and spoken word artist Sheri Booker, who worked with a class of 10th-grade students to develop their voices. This workshop took place during a global pandemic, a national lockdown, and uprisings across the country to end police brutality and structural racism. Read more about the works in this collection, which are artifacts of this period and a true testament to the vision, creativity, and resilience of these students.

Listen to a recording of the following poem above. 

Final Poem

by Lynzie Hamilton

Every part of me belongs to you as much to me.
But summer won’t fade
Lighting up her face
The summer breeze blows

Alone together
Why can’t we all just be equal
As if I won’t put up a fight
To look at the beauty of this world

Lynzie Hamilton was a sophomore at Talented Unlimited High School in NYC at the time of this recording.
