Poetry: Day One

In honor of September as National Literacy Month, we’re publishing poetry written by the students in the PRC writing class. New poems will be published all week. 



Deep, Unbidden

Overpowering, paralyzing, exhausting,

ebbs, flows, resignation, survivable

penetrating, defining, tempering,

cold, unwelcome.




Painful, Unexpected

Heartbreaking, Trust Taking

Cowardly, Cruel, Callous, Cold

Marriage-Breaking, Crazy-Making

Judas Kiss




Untroubled, intuitive

Trusting, stabilizing, disagreeing

Elusive, secured, inexplicable, delicate

Steadying, calming, sobering

Valuable, hard-fought



These poems were created by students of the PRC writing class.
